    I'll play! I am setting eggs this morning. Most of them are pure Dominiques, though I will throw in a few Dominique crosses to fill up the incubator (it fits 24). So I might miss Valentine's day by a smidge, but that's okay!

    I'll jump on. Just put my eggs in the bator last night 1/25/13 around 10:30pm. Using a hova bator with fan upgrade and the auto egg turner. I have 12 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, 1 German New Hampshire, and 3 Easter Eggers x Black Frizzle Cochin Roo. The first two breeds are delivered eggs the last ones are from my girls. Looking forward to doing this hatch with ya'll.

    Okay, we're off and running! Here's the egg tally, they are all from my own hens:

    17 Dominique
    1 Dom x Australorp
    2 Dom x Buff Orp
    4 Dom x Gold Laced Wyandotte

    I'm using a Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance, with an Octagon 40 Eco that will be the hatcher starting day 18, or whenever the eggs are ready for lockdown. I am weighing the eggs to track appropriate humidity, so I'll move eggs over to the hatcher any day after day 18 that they approach the correct weight, or when they pip externally (whichever happens first). :)

    The more the merrier I think. If you want to join one that's closer to your start date that's fine too. What are you planning on putting in the bator?
