    I've always let my brood hens hatch. A friend has given me a Dickey's incubator along with 40 geese and 5 ducks. I want to use the incubator for some of the geese eggs and chicken eggs. I haven't looked in the 'bator to see if everything is in there but sure it is. How can I get instructions on how to use it? I want to start hatching soon.
    I had a couple of hens (chickens) sitting until our 5 month old Aussie Shepherd snuck into the coop and stole eggs. He's banished to the dog pen.

    This may or may not help you. It's what I found when I googled "Dickey's incubator manuals" http://dickeyincubators.com/instructions.html

    If you have any questions pertaining to the actual hatching and not about using that particular incubator there's plenty of us willing to give our philosophies and experiences. [​IMG] Just ask away.
