    I am going to be setting 9 sizzle eggs in the incubator close to midnight tonight, anyone else setting anything with me? First batch with the free incubator, it is holding temp and humidity fine, hope it hatches out lots of eggs!

    That makes sense and it could be a good thing that they start pipping/hatching in the middle of the night. I'll be setting 13 delaware and 7 FBCM's as soon as my last coronation sussex decides to get out of the shell, I'm thinking I might need to get another bator to hatch in because that 1 little chick is messing up my schedule. LOL!!!

    I set some last week and only have about 8 right now waiting to go in so I guess it won;t be right with you. My girls have slowed way down on laying so, thank goodness, I will be hatching less chicks. With 300 chicks so far and all the brooders to clean I suppose I am getting ready for a small break. It will be good for the holidays to slow down some.
