    I should be setting my 2 dz silke eggs on Thursday and lock down on the 18th, due to hatch on the 21st. So I am in. I am a first timer using a Hova-Bator 1602 with auto turner and fan kit. I plan to sit on this incubator like a broody hen. Which bator are you using? What do you have in there? Good luck with your hatch.

    Oh, I'll be all over the month of October! 7 eggs here, 7 eggs there, another 7 over here, and 7 back there, plus 18 more in a 5th 'bator. Oh, yah, and 3 in an R-COM 'bator... plus I ordered another 24-egg 'bator which I bet will arrive in time to load up and hatch before the end of October.

    Trust me, I'm still new at this, just ... ummmm..... enthusiastic about it!

    I've got 12 eggs (so far hehe) in a brinsea octogan 20 DX with manual turn. I have an autoturn cradle, but it doesn't seem to work and the manual turn is so easy and gives me something to do ... otherwise I do nothing with this incubator! I love it! And to turn it I don't even have to open it just shift the whole incubator back or forward.

    Mine are due to hatch on the 9th. I candled last night and culled 9 eggs. I started with 45 eggs (miss-counted thought the turner held 41 but it is 42) 24 were RIR and the rest were Partridge and Silverlaced Cochins. I now have 36 left. Hopefully most of the remaining eggs hatch!
