    I will be setting my first eggs tomorrow morning, 16 from various breeds. This is my first hatch. Using a still-air bator and dry hatch (mostly dry, I may have to add a tiny bit of water). I will candle tomorrow to mark day 1 air cell and will candle again on day 7. I'm so excited! I hope there is someone else out there who will be setting tomorrow!

    I'll join you :) I'm doing a test run with just 6 as I don't want to risk the lives of more than that on my first try...

    chicken hybrid. The rooster is my avatar and the hens are a mix and barred plymouth rock.

    You'll get some cute chicks I hope. I'm really hoping most of mine hatch, I may cry if they do not. I have done SO MUCH research that I am pretty confident I will have a successful hatch, but only time will tell.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel about it too. I'm trying very hard not to get my hopes up too high!

    Bator is holding steady between 100-101 degrees, dry, 1 of 2 plug out. Sound about right? I plan to set tomorrow morning around 10am.

    Sounds good. Mine's at 100 steady and I'll set earlier... around 8 am probably.
