    Brave soul, this one.

    Welcome! Here's hoping you can take a joke, or remain oblivious to them.

    Good luck, sideWing. [​IMG]

    My boy (12) would like to show. If we endup with a good one we will. Besides eggs Silver Laced Wyandottes are one of the things that got me into chickens. But I realize now that it was pics of show quality SLW that I really loved. I'm sad my current 6 are not turning out even though they are not hatchery stock.

    I just want that beautiful bird in my yard!

    I'm learning as I go, but if I had it all to do over again I would buy nothing but SOP.

    also would it work with having to have higher humidity for the hatching eggs than the ones that are still in the turner.

    If you make your own you do, and they don't have to be gross.

    Yes. I do staggered hatches all the time. If you raise the humidity at the first pip then pull the humidity pad or cover the water pan at the end of hatch, the average will do no harm.

    Also, the bigger cabinets with bigger fans dry out the eggs more than does a plastic or foam incubator. Part of it is the air current over the eggs and the bigger vents, but the rest is the smaller surface area of the water pan compared to incubator volume. You can lower the humidity much faster in a larger cabinet.
