    My husband has built an incubator and we wanted to share our photos with BYC'ers. After doing a lot of research we set 3 OEG mix and 4 BO/JG mix today. Here are our first pics and hope to have them hatch in 21 or so days! Thanks for looking!

    Everything going good so far on day 2. Temps are stable and eggs have been turned 1/4 turn 2 times so far! Keeping our fingers crossed.

    OH, it's really neat! Hope you have a good hatch. Not being nosey, but hoping the "88" at the bottom of your temp monitor ins't your humidity...that would be way too high if so. Another comment - it also looks like it will be easy to clean!

    Thanks! Actually he's pretty handy but the basic concept came from a design by Miss Prissy and Speckledhen which was quite simple really!
    That was right when it was turned on the humidity is steady at 37%.
