    So I am setting a bunch of purchased eggs today, from 3 different farms, one in CA, one in GA, and one in KY (I went to pick those up yesterday) I have a total of 44 eggs, will be putting a few under a broody hen since there are only 41 spots in the bator. I will (god willing) be hatching some olive egger ameracaunas, blue and blue splash marans and lavendar orpingtons.

    I am using an LG as well and I have had good hatch rates thus far. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue but the humidity here has skyrocketed so I am hoping it doesn't do the same to my incubator.

    I just got a hova bator 1588 pre-set. And was having heck of a time controlling humidity. I think I got it now and hope it stays and I get some duckies! I want chocolate calls so bad! Good Luck to all. [​IMG]

    Yesterday 8:54 pm I just got a hova bator 1588 pre-set


    I also am trying my new HovaBator 1588 for the first time. I dont have a way to check the humidity, though. Might have to look into that! I am trying the dry incubation again.

    Does anyone candle their eggs? I havent' tried this yet either.....

    I am going to candle mine on day 7. I have done cockatiel eggs a long time ago I don't think it will be much different and these eggs are bigger so may be a little easier to see something. I can't wait to candle them so I can see if their doing something. LOL
