I bought some Speckled Sussex eggs on eBay, and received all 14 in good shape. They went in the bator on Valentine's Day. The incubator is right here beside my computer, humming away. This pre-set Hovabator is wonderful! The temp is right on the money, all I have to do is watch the humidity and add water once in awhile. I will be candling the eggs next Friday, and I am excited about that. Everytime in the past, the eggs have been colors that are hard to see through. This time the eggs are light brown, and I should be able to see everything very clearly!
