    Our first hatch went so well I cleaned out the bator and set a bunch more. Set 30 total....18 Turken I bought from someone here, and 12 from my own hens, including 2 BR, a couple SLW and some EE. Plus, for sentimental reasons, we also set the last egg laid by our brown leghorn who was attacked and killed by a neighbors dog.

    So who's in?

    I'm with you... I set about 50 on Sept 18th and set about another 50 yesterday and will set around 50 more next week. I have a cabinet incubator. I have BO, BR, Blue Rock, RIR, and Delaware eggs. I am hatching some for a friend.

    Quote:I love my sportsman too. I use it to incubate in. I do staggered hatches. I put in a tray at a time in the incubator. I use my stryofoam tabletop incubators as hatchers. So I have several different dates in my incubator.
