    Sally,

    The PA hatchery that sells Freedom Rangers also sells white muscovies. I'm not sure if they also sell hatching eggs.

    The temps and humidity are staying pretty steady! I put in 3 RIRs and 3 BSLs...well assuming that it's my RIR rooster fertilizing the eggs and not the silkie. I put in another RIR this morning and waiting for my Barred Rock to lay this morning and gonna throw hers in too. That'll be it then. I wanna keep at least one BSL girl if I get one. Probably sell or give away the RIRs

    SALLY! Those $14 thermostats, if you're upgrading a sportsman from wafer to that, do you need the relay?

    I fired up the Sportsman today. I am setting my eggs collected the last couple of days and I have bantam BBS/Lav Ameraucanas coming. I am also trying to get my hands on UK bantam Orps. My hatching season officially begins today.

    As for what I had in the Hova-bator. One bantam black Orp hatched and I was unsure it'd make it because not all of it's insides were absorbed. It still has some danglies hanging and drying but it's up and peeping. I had a Mille Fleur bantam Cochin pip, zip and hatch overnight. So, it looks like I will be getting 2 chicks out of nearly 35 eggs set. Only 9 made it past day 7 (I think many were partially frozen). After the failure that was this round, I hope the Sportsman does better.
