I didn't plan to hatch any eggs, I've got as many chicks as I need at the moment (and too many of them roos). But, when one of my co-workers approached me on Wednesday with an egg carton in her hand, all that changed. "I brought you some of my pheasant eggs so you can show them to your daughters" she said. "I just collected them yesterday and they haven't been refrigerated, so you could hatch them if you want." So, I make a call to another friend and tell her that I would like to have her old bator after all if she still wants to get rid of it. She brings it over and once hubby repairs the broken cord, I am now the proud owner of an LG9200 still air bator. Of course, I couldn't just put those five tiny pheasant eggs in there all alone, so I set aside a dozen of my best looking chicken eggs, too. The pheasant eggs went in yesterday afternoon and the others will join them on Tuesday. So far, the bator is holding a pretty steady temp of 100 and the humidity is staying between 40 and 45% This is the first time I've attempted this, and I'm sure I'll do most things wrong, so I'll be amazed if anything hatches. It's going to be a very long three weeks.
