    I HAVE A LITTLE GIANT MODEL 9200 W/ AUTO EGG TURNER. UNDER $100 BUCKS AND SEEMS TO WORK PRETTY GOOD.

    This is my first set, so I am glad to have found you. I set a total of 11, nothing special, but you can never have enough!.

    I am using the same LG 9200, without the turner.

    Great hope you have a good hatch. This is my second attempt this season. My first attempt was a misrable failure. I purchased a dozen shipped eggs from a breeder and didnt get a single one to hatch. I think I had incubator issues though. I've since corrected my problem and have another batch going.

    Are your eggs some from your own birds or did you get them from someone else?

    I've dont that for years, some of my best chickens were "mutts". Not until recently I started having purebreeds. I will be selling the eggs so that's why i wanted to seperate mine and keep them pure, otherwise i would let them all run together. When i was a kid i ordered a "rare breed" special from a hatchery. So i got a little bit of everything, had them all running together. I had so many varities of hen and roos it was a blast to see what kind of offspring I ended up with. I must say got some very unusual mixtures. Had some feather legged top hats with beards. Interesting to say the least.... :)
