    Thank You!I actually did read the thread on hatching,and I learned quite a bit.I wanted to start the process a couple days after I'm supposed to receive the eggs,and I did not know you had any time to wait, so that was good.

    Ok,I do have a couple questions, what is piping? And what do they mean by taking temp level?I take it a lot of these incubators don't hold the correct temp?

    Pipping I think is when the chick first breaks a hole in the egg to breath.

    I am new to incubating too so anybody else know anything?
