    Dispite all my planning to get 4 sets of eggs from byc'ers at the same time, the hens and the PO wouldn't let that happen lol. The last box was late getting here. So I set the first 3 batches, because I just couldn't wait on the last batch. The fourth batch finally showed up 10 days after it was shipped, I let them rest and put them in the bator just in case.

    IF they develope, does anyone have any advice or a simple one use homemade hatcher/bator ideas?

    I just bought a cheap LG ($41) to use as a hatcher. i was going to make one, but figured at least $25 in materials and possibly less reliability. Good luck!
