    I set 20 isabel leghorns, seven guineas, and six cemanis today! And that's actually probably it for May aside from the cemanis that I will now be setting periodically.

    I see a trip in your future, to your local feed store, for a couple friends for your loner. I'm sorry you had such a rough hatch. If you were closer, I'd share some babies....[​IMG]

    I was telling my mom I ordered a still air as a hatcher so there'd be room for her quail eggs and my eggs as the others go into lockdown and she told me I didn't have to do that. Why spend the money when we could've waited a little longer, yada, yada. And yet she was smiling ;)

    Tonight I roll in and she tells me she's remembered that a friend of ours lent us an incubator and it's still in the barn and we went up to get it and oh my goodness this thing is a beast! I've never seen this kind of incubator befor, but she's plugged in and I'm trying to get the temps right so it could maybe be used as a hatcher even though I'm mildly terrified of this tin can burning the house down... :hmm

    So now I have 4 incubators instead of three if this one works out and I need more eggs xD

    The thing is I wasn't even planning on keeping this un!! I'm not giving up yet, even if I have to play a video of chicks peeping to boost morale... Thanks. :hugs


    Temp did go down to 92 for about 30 min after I accidentally hit the control on day 18.... could that have killed them?

    Thanks! And I miscounted, I set seven cemani eggs. I currently have 69 eggs incubating :th I don't plan to keep all of them, but still. This is what happens when you just set a few here and there, lol.
