    Okay everyone who else has fuzzy butts in the bator. I just sat some last night 42 cortex quail, 12 mix ducks. We had a small problem with temp a few mins ago but we will keep out hopes up right. If you are hatching for January 2017 please join me.

    I have a hen sitting on about half a dozen eggs right now...We'll see if she manages to hatch them. They should hatch the first couple days of January if she's successful.

    Is 100.6 F an acceptable temperature? I haven't incubated in awhile and I'm second guessing myself.

    for a still air a tad low. 102 if i remember is set point for those.

    99.8 for a forced air incubator.

    but I set mine at 100. forced air.

    you should be fine.

    Hi, I have eggs in for a NY hatch. But quite a few of them were a gamble because they spent 3 weeks lost at the post office. Well, I've pulled 3 stinky and 1 exploded. For the ones I've pulled, I've been adding my backyard mix eggs. So, those were set last night, and this morning. So, I will be doing a staggered hatch!
