    Ok, everybody post their favorite Incubator and also state how many hatches you've had that were considered past day 21? I'm just sooo curious on this as it seems that a lot of people are waiting and waiting on day 22 etc., [​IMG]

    LG 10200 (forced air model) equipped with egg turner. Transfer to a hova still air hatcher.

    Excluding non-fertile/non-germinating eggs (mailed egg and low fertility turkey egg problems) I've seen 80% plus hatch rates.

    Edit: Tend to hatch days 21 and 22 for chickens
