    Nice, I'm using my momma's Dickie incubator. I still haven't decided on what kind I want, I think I am going to build one. I have 18 eggs total in the bator, 16 Australorp and 2 EE's. I cannot wait for them to hatch!

    After using your moms dickey bator you may be buying one of them.
    I started with one now I have two and I won't use any other kind now.
    I just set another 60 eggs yesterday that's a 120 all together for me.
    Hope y'all have a great hatch
