    Yes, the Brinsea with the pump would be your best bet. A bunch of experimenting with humidity levels and of course weighing the eggs and no Porous eggs used.

    It looks like it may take some extra days too.

    Hi I have mostly Huastecs and a few Colloncas do you know very much abut the Huastecs they are laying even in this freezing weather and started right after they got here . I also have 2 Sweet Potato that are just beautiful and just 1 BQO still not sure if it is a male or female although I think it would be crowing by now. A friend is guiding me on breeding and to get the stock I had to promise not to cross breed with anything unless told so . I was happy to agree. Maybe you could give me some advice on taking care of the ones I listed that I have I would appreciate it, As I do not know a whole lot about keeping them pure without to much inbreeding. Thank you

    I do not have them yet but want some Colloncas. It is great to hear that they are good winter layers.

    Do they also lay during hot weather?

    I have seen plenty of broody hatches here. These are mixed breeds. I am over 7,000 ft.

    Not sure about incubator hatching. Most of the commercial hatcheries are located around 2,000 to 3,000 ft elevation.

    The best source of information on that is a book that is published by the American Livestock Breeders Conservancy. Here is the link: https://app.etapestry.com/cart/livestockconservancy/default/item.php?ref=4237.0.28051663

    This book explains how to breed even with limited genetics.
