    We just set up our Georgia Quail Farm 1550 Incubator and 1500 Hatcher today and are getting ready for our first run. Has anyone used these machines before, and if so, do you have any advice so we don't learn the hard way? While I teach Animal Science, this is my first time incubating and I am learning right along with my students. We will be setting Partridge Chantecler eggs and haven't started saving eggs yet because we don't have a game plan in place. I have a "How to Incubate Eggs" book but was hoping for some more real world advice 'from the trenches', if you will. Any help or support is much appreciated! Thanks!

    I have the 1602N so I'm not sure how much help I'll be. Maybe someone else will have some advise for you?
