    Greetings from Kansas, 12Chickens, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! I'm an incubating rookie myself so I can't offer much advice. I'd suggest posting in the thread below. Be specific about what you are having troubles with - someone should be able to help you out. Good luck to you!

    Welcome to BYC. The beauty of hatching with an incubator is that you don't have to wait for a hen to go broody. Keep trying - it gets easier.
