Whoo hoo! This is a great forum for first timers! Good luck! Let us know how it goes for you!
I set 21 eggs tonight, 7 apiece in 3 incubators, so I'm on the same schedule. I don't have very high expectations for these eggs, because they're shipped eggs, and not fresh at all. I got 'em when I already had eggs incubating in all the 'bators, and just now got those three "free" to refill. But I just couldn't toss those eggs....
Thank you! Have a batch of silkie eggs coming didn't want to do a staggared hatch but...These were "fresh" purchased them tuesday night they shipped wed and I received them in here in california on friday afternoon.
I have a Hova-Bator 1602 that I got brand new on ebay for $39.99 bought a fan for a few bucks added it myself its got pretty colorful lights. I'm going to be setting 7 more egg next week same bator and then another 24 in Nov.
It's been holding temperature really well had it up and running a week and added the fan and it spiked a bit came back down had to add a piece of foil to bring the humidity down Egg turner should be here at the same time as the other eggs.
