    I have incubated several times in my Brinsea OvaEasy and my hens have also successfully sat on eggs.....however.... my success rate is not that great considering the amount of eggs I have put in the incubator at one time. I always get chicks hatch, but lots that don't. So I've decided this time to be a little more professional (usually, I put them in, set the temp and humidity, and turning of trays, and pretty much leave them to it until just before hatching, when I turn humidity up.

    Can someone please suggest a good article on incubation to read, with instructions on candling and weighing etc....

    Many thanks.

    (The eggs are from Lavender Orpington's.)
