    Great! How many eggs do you have? What Breed are they?? :)
     
  4. I will be putting in 41. As for breeds, they are all barnyard brats....We raise our chickens for eggs and meat so at this time I don't have a specific breed I am hatching. I need to get another rooster before I can do some of that. But these girls have been laying really well for us so I figured I needed some more....!!
    Good luck on your hatch, its addicting, reaaalllllyyyyy addicting!!

    This is my very first solo hatching in a incubator made myself..so far the temp has remained stable but humidity is all over the place.
     
  7. Good luck CrazyChickens! Humidity is tough; for me it always seems to be more/orless than I really want it to be. Congratulations on making your own incubator; I hope it works out well!
