    Hi everyone,
    Late last night I set my first eggs. Got eggs from fellow BYC member. They are in the incubator now. First time doing this so wish me luck. 3 of the eggs got damaged in shipping so I have 3 left. They are EE eggs. Hope at least one hatches and with my luck this year its not a roo [​IMG] Any advice will be appreciated. Ive been reading eveything here on incubating eggs so hopefully I can do this right [​IMG] I have a little giant incubator wth forced air and egg turner 3 thermomators heat holding at 99.5

  3. I set 21 barnevelder eggs yesterday in a mini fridge converted into a incubator. This is the first try at hatching in my DIY incubator.

    I also have 14 banty cochins due to hatch next friday. These were shipped eggs, I started with 16.

    My daughter said if all these eggs hatch I might become a chicken hoarder. [​IMG]
