    Hello,

    I just placed an order for my first incubator....I am very excited. I ordered A Brinsea Octogon 20 Advance. Not sure how long it will take to get here.

    Can someone point me in the right direction for some links on how to incubate? I have duck, goose, and chicken eggs here on the farm. I am assuming I should probably start with chicken. Are they the easiest? How many days can I collect eggs before they go into the incubator?

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate it.

    Congrats, you're in for some wonderful yet stressful days! My first incubation was duck eggs and I had a marvelous hatch. It's been many years ago but I remember we had to spray the eggs with water every so often. Here are some great articles on hatching. https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
