Any tips to avoid problems? I have a sponge ready for low humidity dips. I have it warm so its ready to accept my future babies. Hubby is trying to find the 2nd thermometer. I have paper towels ready. Eggs are marked so I can keep track of turning them. No auto turner and an 18 year old incubator. Hubby is getting prepared by studying up on homemade bators just in case. Anything I am missing? I have studied the sticky posts, gathered what I could out of books, talked to my 90 year old chicken lady friend. Now I am just nervous to start. Everyone tells me that chickens are easier to hatch than geese and ducks. Is that really true. I have done both of those successfully, actually with the same bator. I am hoping its easier. All suggestions welcome. These are all barnyard mixes so I am really hoping I have some interesting additions.
