    AH! That is so exciting! What is the yellow thing in the incubator? An egg turner without trays? Congratulations on your hatch!

    Yes it the egg turner w/o trays. I had to leave so my wife and daughter had to tend to them. So I just told them remove the trays. The wire on bottom keeps curling up. So it was easier for them to just leave it in.

    I set 20 eggs this morning lat time I set 60 eggs thinking a 50% or less hatch since I use a homemade incubator. 48 hatched and that was way more birds than I was ready for. Never again so only 20 hope 15 hatch. [​IMG]
