    OMG, so at least I have company? I'm a new 'addict' lol.

    I think I've coordinated it to everything, including my new Genesis shows up for starting it up on the 20th.

    I have room for 3 hens. So I'm incubating:

    - 6 Giant Cochin
    - 6 Frizzles
    - 2 Cochin/Ameraucana/red banty cross
    - 5 lt. Brahma
    - 10+ Black Copper Maran/Welsummers/Birchen Marans/Cuckoo Marans
    - 7 EE

    [​IMG] ... [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure I'll be able to keep at least 3 hens at my school, and another teacher wants an EE roo if I get one. And the last three are shipped eggs, so who knows how that'll go! The rest I can find homes for, although I'll probably try to sell the ones I don't keep through Craigslist first.

    ...my temptation is ordering one of those Brinsea incubators that are on sale again!! [​IMG]

    Holy cow! That's a TON of eggs! How do you rotate them all? Or candle them!?

    I've got 8 Brown Red x Lemon Blue Modern Game Bantam eggs (from very valuable parents... hope they make it!), 4 Golden Duckwing Old English Game Bantam eggs, and 4 Brown Red Modern Game Bantam eggs. I keep adding as they lay more. Got another BR MG to add, but I gotta wait for some more!

    Well as soon as I can block off the last little space in the bottom I am gonna tilt the whole bator to turn the eggs , If it was just chicken I would turn them by hand probly but the little quail eggs are a pain and I have already cracked 2 but bumping them against eatch other , So tammrow I plan on rigging something to keep all eggs where they should be for the rest of the little ones and just tilt the whole thing a bit, I was watching the turner for my other LG and it dosnt seem to turn the eggs a huge amount so I feel this will be a resanable thing to do . Wish me luck [​IMG]

    I am tickled pink about my eggs:

    4 Silkies from an awesome BYCer (there were 8, but I think USPS drove over the box - 4 crushed :-( )
    16 Buckeyes
    20 Seramas
    1 EE
    and 3 goose eggs (just an experiment, but what pretty eggs they are)

    I love the huge size difference between the goose eggs and the Seramas - too funny
    Best wishes for a perfect hatch for all of us!
