    No, I haven't purchased the humidity tank. Honestly the hatches I've done so far have had good success rates without it. You keep a certain amount of water in it during the days before lockdown and then increase it for lockdown. I had one hatch already of 4 of 4 eggs set with little to no work from me other than keeping the little water area filled to the line. [​IMG]
    I am desperately trying to stay small with hatching. I have a Farm Innovators bigger styrofoam model with a turner and all, but I hate it. No success with it. I had trouble with the humidity levels, etc. Just bought it in the summer and it is sitting in the basement in its box. If I do cave and go bigger I am sticking with Brinsea and getting the 20 egg hatcher from them.

    Sound/look like Brinsea is a good brand....been talking things over w/DH, and he actually is making sense...this time...shhhhh, i did not say that! Anyway,going to hold off on the eggs/hatching adventure for now,[​IMG]...and stick to the "plan A"...find nice juveniles around spring..start that way, "better to lose a toe than a whole foot". Plus I just don't have the set-up for eggs; room, equipt.etc...I am also in the process of putting the coop together, adding shingles & other "things" to a "cookie-cutter" coop(one of those kits)..just trying to make it "better". I have kept the info.about the bators for future reference..maybe will even give a crack at building one ourselves...I have time, and alot of nice folks who give their knowledge freely, so things are still good [​IMG]..

    Purdy, I actually agree with your hubby. I went that route...and it helped me to get used to the chickens before deciding to incubate.

    Sally WAHHH Why are those eggs soooo far away??
