    Setting my "Second" batch in the bator tomorrow. 5, maybe 6 if she lays another before I do! They are button quail eggs! So 16 days incubation for me! I say"second" because my 1st batch is still "cooking" in the bator for a few more days and bf won't let me give up on the horribly staggered hatch I did being a newbie! Would love for "peeps" to hatch along with me! HAPPY HATCHING!!! [​IMG]

    Staggered hatch??? [​IMG]

    I set my first 3 eggs yesterday and added one tonight. Am I not supposed to do that?? I hope that I get at least one chick out of this whole process! I need to make it worth the new incubator! [​IMG] Good luck with your hatch!

    Quote:Well I haven't had much luck doing very staggered hatches.. But you can store fresh eggs for 7 days so they aren't so staggered. I am sure you are fine! [​IMG]

    I set 6 Sebrights today and tomorrow I'll be setting 3 Vorwerks and 3 Friesians, so we won't be hatching at the same time. I look forward to hearing how yours go!
