Ok, so I'm going to put my first batch of eggs in the bator on Sunday. These are eggs I collected from my current flock (ISA Brown hybrid hens with a red sex-link roo) and the bator is homemade. I've never incubated eggs before, so this should be a learning experience if nothing else. This is a still-air unit with both analog and digital thermometers and a hygrometer. Based on a test run, I am able to keep the temp at about 101.5 with 45% humidity. I have heat sinks (water filled jars) in the bottom and plan on turning the eggs by hand. I'm thinking about putting the eggs in cartons with the bottoms cut out for lockdown. Anyone have any suggestions??
