I put money where my mouth should be. While sampling some of the finer hops, I over heard 2 gentlemen knocking the LG and bragging about how great thier incubators are. Neither of them have ever had a 50% hatch rate. Yet, they are down grading the LG. As most there know, I use a LOT of LG's, so I maded them a little bet. They can and collect 3 dozen eggs for each bator. Incubate them and see who has the best hatch rate. So, is it the LG against the big boys or is it the operators against one another. If they get less than 50% each, I will hatch more chicks than both of them. Out of the last 324 eggs I set, 307 hatched. Of those 17 eggs, only one was fertile. At the end of this 21 days, looks like I can get a few more BCM trios. I better not count those chicks before they hatch. This all starts next Friday, so on the 24 of next month we will know.
