    Hi, everyone, new to the site and relatively new to keeping chickens. I live in northumberland in the uk, i was given a few x battery hens a few years ago and found them fascinating and so i have decided to try and hatch some eggs, got my incubator today a janoel12 which is how i found this site because i dont have any instructions, a search on the internet brought me to a thread dated 2014 which was very useful. I'm going to run it empty for a few days to get used to the controls and hopefully get some eggs in by the end of the week.
