    Oh yeah. Mine just bombed me...lol. Between all the animals and my 1 yo mine dont get as much attention as id like, but an early effort is always good. All the older ones i hve are pretty aloof. One or 2 will come close enough to touch, so im lookin forward to some sweeties, hence the BO's

    No, they grow up just fast enough to recoop the funds so that they are out of the brooder just as you are ready to refill the brooder! These things are sneaky, lol!

    So how does everyone do staggered hatches, if they just have one incubator? I have one set due next Saturday, one the following Friday but will be getting more eggs mid week. I dry hatch, but not sure how to balance "lock down" with the others needing their dry hatch time. Thanks!

    I use a separate hatcher. That way you don't have to change humidity and it doesn't mess up the incubator with the egg hatching leftovers.
    That's the only way I know of.

    Thank you! But what if I don't have one? Maybe I need to get one.
