    I should be getting my incubator any time today [​IMG]
    So i have been collecting eggs from my chickens.
    But some of them are a bit porus... do you think they will do okay in the incubator?

    Sure. they will be fine, but don't let the incubator dry out. Porous eggs dehydrate faster.

    I can only agree. My very, very, very porous egg hatched first and had a very healthy chick in it. I couldn't believe it. I hatched 5 out of 6 successfully with 50% humidity Day 1-18 and then 70% for lockdown. I live in MI and it was cold and dry outside.
