Hello all, I am starting this thread to chronicle my hatching adventures, from starting out to upgrading incubators and setting more and more eggs. As of now, I have a LG 9200 with an auto turner and some slight modifications, which are detailed below. I plan to build my own incubator within the next few months. Back Story: I became interested in incubating several months ago, after starting to get some fertile eggs from my roosters. While asking around on BYC I found the "Incubating w/ friends" thread. After reading the incredible pile of information on there and asking some questions, I decided to sit back and wait for spring. Yeah, right, famous last words, eh? After finding a 'bator and ordering some add-ons, I am now almost ready to set eggs. Due to thermometer problems, set date has been delayed, but hopefully within the next week I can get some eggs cooking. Hygroset Modification---so easy, but makes adjusting temperatures way easier. Just hot glue a lego onto the adjuster. 'bator pictures: My plans are to build a cooler incubator and get a good cross going with my EE/Sultan eggs. I am curious as to what they look like. Update: 1st gen cross of EE x Sultan below. I am very pleased. Some of my beautiful rainbow carton for setting.
