    If I had any confidence in my ability to incubate or were closer, I'd gladly free up some room in the bator for you!

    I'm sure you'll do fine!! Our inspector was really nice, laid back and made it easy to learn. Good luck! [​IMG]

    If you end up with an incubator for lots more eggs than you have, use 'sinkers' to regulate your temps. Have FUN with it.

    We have 2 Barred Holland hens, they are the sweetest birds, almost to a fault (they get picked on by the other breeds) - GREAT broody hens.

    Now you tell me! I could've put a lot LESS eggs in there and not had fiancee quite as worried about being overrun with chicks!

    Oh please! Sinkers are a last resort. More eggs is the preferred method. I know you know that.

    I have to say I am in love with my mini brinsea advanced. So easy and great hatch rates. Of course it only fits 7 eggs, so remember that. That is/was enough for me, although I have to say I was envious of some of the NYD hatchers that got to put in a few dozen eggs. Time to save up for a little bit bigger brinsea!
