    [​IMG] I am so excited right now!! [​IMG] I ordered 6+ and got 9!! Yeah! Now just [​IMG] that I don't mess this hatch up. DH came home with a LG still air bator with turner last night, so that was just in time!! [​IMG] I will let the eggs sit at room temp until tomorrow morning and then set them. Yaaay! [​IMG] This is just such a thrill, I hope I get a few hens out of this. (splash ones, preferably [​IMG] [​IMG] )

    Now, since I am just so wound up, can y'all remind me of the right temps for the LG still air? I have it at around 99.5% right now and humidity is around 50%. I know that's a little high, right? Should be more around 45%? Thaaanks, y'all! [​IMG]

    How exciting! BLRW are so cool looking.

    The problem with this website is that I keep getting introduced to new breeds and varieties of chickens and so I keep wanting more and more. [​IMG]

    I hope you get your hens!
