    Thanks for the reminder to read all the information again to refresh my memory. Last time the broodies hatched out all their eggs except one, but we didn't have that great of a hatch rate with the extra eggs we threw in the incubator. We did have 3 hatch in the incubator last time, but we didn't educate ourselves beforehand so we made a bunch of mistakes, like washing the eggs and putting them right in the incubator instead of letting them settle for a day or so.

    Anyway, I am going to re-read all that information and hopefully we will get more than 3 hatching in the incubator this time! I have 13 eggs to set but I will probably give 3 to my friend who has a broody.

    I haven't checked the air cells yet but for sure I will do it tonight & probably put set them tomorrow.

    Thanks to those who responded. I candled all of them today and removed 7 (upon egtopsy they were all infertile).

    I thought it would feel like it was going to take these eggs forever to hatch. Now, after a week, I feel kinda rushed. This is going way faster than I expected.
