    I am so bummed tonight. Our anniversary is tomorrow and my husband surprised me tonight with a new brinsea incubator and I have no eggs saved to try it out. We have used the foam incubators a couple of times now with no luck. Last weekend we were due to hatch 3 doz of our eggs. Only one made it. It was really too bad because these were the last of the eggs from our hens and roo who were attacked by a fox. I was really hoping to get some of their babies. I wish I had enough eggs saved up to start this incubator right away, but since I didn't know it was coming, I gave all our eggs to relatives and did alot of baking. Hopefully I can make it a few weeks until I have spme eggs saved up to to try out my new incubator. [​IMG]

    Go get them back from your relatives!!!!

    Just kidding, but have fun with your new incubator, it's so easy after the foam ones.

    Yeah, I wish I could but they already think I am nuts. Imagine if I started taking their breakfast away from them. I don't think that would go over too well. [​IMG]

    Do you know anyone locally that you could maybe get some eggs from? or maybe try craigslist and see if anyone is posting any?
