We're new to chickens, having bought 6 2-week-old chicks just before Thanksgiving with the intention of having fresh eggs beginning next spring. We'll likely give 2 of those to neighbors if our hatching attempts pan out well. We just got our eggs yesterday and are ready to put them into the incubator this afternoon. It's a Hovabator still air and the temp seems to be a constant 100.0 for the last 48 hours. Need to get a hygrometer today to make sure that's doing well, but we're in Western Washington and have radiant heat, so I'm not too worried about humidity (or am I just being naive??). We ordered some mixed Frizzle eggs on eBay and they arrived quickly and safely. Seven eggs. Hoping for at least one or two chicks. Since we'll only keep hens, hopefully they'll not be all males! My 4- and 2-year old daughters will likely enjoy this as much as I will! Anyway, if anyone has any tips, we're all ears! I've gleaned many from the message boards thus far. Thanks!!
