    Hey everyone, I'm Patty,this is our first year having chickens, we had a rooster,but had to get rid of him cause he attack my grandson then he started attacking my husband every time he went in the coop, we did get some eggs before we got rid of him . We have some in the incubator now they should be ready Feb 4 , I'm so excited , we've been having trouble keeping the temp and humidity at the right setting, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Nice to meet you Patty, Welcome to Backyard chickens. I've never incubated eggs, so I'm no help there. I do hope when you babies hatch, they don't inherit their father's disposition.

    Sending good hatching vibes your way[​IMG]

    Hi, Patty and welcome to BYC. Best of luck with your hatch - the link given by redsoxs should help you out. Please include as many details as possible re: the make of your incubator, where you live etc.

    Best wishes

    G’Day from down under Patty2017 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some great advice, I will just send best wishes for the hatch!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
