    Yes it's the best rule to go by
    Just so you don't get too exited saying I have this amount
    Of eggs hatching but then only half hatch

    I'm terrible at keeping secrets and turkey eggs are hard to hide in the incubator so now my sister knows I'm hatching out bourbon reds for her birthday.

    Hi everyone! I am so excited to be starting our second hatch ever, hopefully on Sunday. Here's the lowdown -

    *We have the following hens: Rhodebar, Blue Andalusian, Welsummer, and Dominique all covered by a Cream Legbar roo (mostly) and possibly a Rhodebar roo. (He sneaks a quickie in every now and then before getting knocked off!)

    *Planning to set around 20 eggs in our ancient round Sears incubator. It has a new wafer installed and I am trying out a computer fan in it for air circulation.

    I'm looking forward to following along with you all! I've been dreaming of hatching chicks for a couple months now. Though our first hatch wasn't a roaring success (only 7 hatched out of 24 - though some of those were definitely not fertile), it was so exciting to watch them hatch!
