    I just set 24 in incubator. 12 were shipped, all had detached air cells. I am crossing my fingers they hatch! The shipped eggs are bantam cochins and the rest are backyard mix chickens. So our due date is March 15th!

    Yeah I have seen her post I do not plan on turning for at 4-5 days I really hope the chicks make it but I have learned not to get my hopes up they are at 102 degrees 25percent humidity. I have a still air so that is the recommended temp. I have 5 eggs due to hatch this weekend two look good so far possibly three I don't have much hope for the other two but left them in anyway.

    I set 12 on the 21st and 2 on the 22nd. 9 D'uccle, 1 Welsummer, and 4 F2 Olive Eggers. Had the incubator running more than 24 hours before I set the eggs. It was at 102 degrees and 58% humidity the whole time. I set the eggs and everything went wonky. The temp was jumping between 97 and 104. Almost 24 hours later and it's back at 102. I hope the jumping temps didn't mess the eggs up. I never had this problem with the last incubator I used.
