    I've always wanted to own some chickens :)
    And i always wanted to hatch my own chickens too. So thats what i'm doing :)
    I made my own incubator and have today bought my first batch of eggs... I'm soooo excited.
    They've been in the incubator for about 3 hours now and i can't get it regulated. It was fine before the eggs went in. managed to keep it at a regular temp and humidity for 48 hours :)

    Would love to meet like-minded people who are experimenting too :)

    Love Donna

    Hi and[​IMG] So glad you joined us!!!![​IMG]If it hasn't started to regulate then you may need to tweak your thermostat if you can just a hair. I'm guessing that you used either a wafer or hot water heater thermostat. Or it could be that your eggs are still absorbing the heat depending on how many eggs you put in there.
