    I had 9 eggs I didn't want to sell cause I was getting 1/day. So I popped them in bator and they're good! Was away overnite and it got hot in house so temp went to 102. Candled but too late cause either they died or not much room to move in. Lockdown is Saturday, 4/21. Also after I put them in bator I added 3 more up to 3 days. They're a little slower growing so I thought I'd try to hatch them in a carton so when I up humidity they don't drown til they're ready. Will let you know if it works! [​IMG]
