Hello Everyone! I had a broody hen, so I went out and got some fertilized eggs to put under her, and wouldn't you know it? By the time I found someone with fert eggs, and got them home (about 2 weeks) the same day I brought the eggs home she decided to just go back to her normal self and forget about the eggs. So...... I made my own homemade incubator! Literally I spent all night that night researching on here, and the next day I went out purchased everything (only cost me about $20 & using stuff we had at home!) set it up, let it run for about 48 hours and then I set my first batch of eggs on the 14th! I just candled them, and out of the 14 I set, I can see the veining VERY clearly in 13, but not so well in the 14the I know it is harder to see in the brown shells, but I'm SO happy this is seeming to work! My girls are loving this little "Science Experiment" we've got going on in the kitchen too. Here's to hoping we get a good hatch because we are going to give all the chicks but one to our neighbor to help them start their flock.
