Hello, I am new here, and have put eight of my own fertilized eggs in my incubator (HovaBator #1593 -anyone else have this one?). They are either RIR, or a Buff Orpington/RIR cross. I did this as a "trial-run" to get a feel for the process, etc. before I spend money on more expensive eggs. I have candled the eggs - this is not exactly easy with brown eggs! However, I candeled yesterday, and I am pretty sure that at least 6 of my eight are growing! I saw lots of stuff in there - not much detail, but a definate spot and some veins in 6 of them. I MAY have seen movement - is this possible on day 10? Needless to say, I am getting kind of excited! I did this thinking that NONE of them would develop, and I would end up doing this at least 10 times before I got it right. I like the incubator - the temp stays consistant. I have no idea what the humidity is - I am keeping the water in the chamber per the instructions, so we'll see - if all goes wrong, I may end up buying a humidity-checker (lol - I can't remember the name) The 20th is when I will take the auto-turner out, and they are "due" on the 23rd - wish me luck! I will keep you posted!!
