    I only am doing a dozen to see how it goes for my first run, I do not to waste too much life if that makes sense. Wish me luck.

    Keep a note book. Only takes a few minutes. Only a hen doesn't need a notebook. LOL

    Have fun.

    We can be hatching buddies!

    We just set 11 eggs last night at midnight! First time incubating, and I did everything wrong...I built it in about 3 hours last night and set them right after. Also using some organic store bought eggs that were fertile. But so far, so good...bouncing between 99.5-101.5. Want to thank Clay Valley Farmer for convincing me to put in a thermostat, and Confederate Money Farm for the youtube video showing how to make it work.

    I couldn't sleep last night! Also tried candling today, but was too early to see anything. We'll see in a couple of days if the eggs are any good. Can't wait - I'll consider 4 hatching a success, but hope I get at least one!
