    I've done a few hatches. Have 17 I hatched 2 weeks ago brooding at the moment. I have these 10 that 5 have hatched from so far and another 30 in the bator. Trying out my first hatch on coturnix eggs also only have 9 eggs so hoping I get a good hatch.

    i have a whole bunch of buttons on lockdown as well. the 14th is the day for me... hope i have a good hatch, my cat knocked my bator over with 25 eggs in it before and cracked most.... i hatched 2 out of the 9 i had left after they all cracked. so this time around im hoping to have a good hatch 30 on lockdown as well as 30 ,tibetten,rossettas/scarlet reds/ tib/ros/scarlett tuxedos. as well as a&ms and jumbo browns. in my other bator. ANNDDD i have 8 EE eggs in the new homeade incubator i made from a minifridge.(trial 1) should be a good hatch. it hold temp and humitity perfectly. so im exited for these new hatches.
    my lil giant incubator with turner has 85 eggs all coturnix. a&ms and browns
    my lil giant HATCHER (bator without turner) has 30 buttons and 30 coturnix(color assortment)
    mini fridge has 8 EE (bator and hatcher in itself)
