    I don't know how else to do staggered hatches. I dry hatch also.

    I'm doing great besides the :he with my SLWs. Thanks for checking! Right now I have more chicks than I know what to do with. This hatch should put me over the number I need for my Marans dark egg project, so it's only about six months until I begin phase II. I guess the numbers will work out as I've just built four new aviaries and am planning on pullet pens. I've been keeping up with this thread and it sounds like things are well with you.

    I have one pen with three and the second has two. I've plucked all of them and watched them breed. It looks as though he makes good contact. I haven't been keeping up with the pen number the eggs are coming from until the group that's in the bator now. Hopefully, I will know something on the 16th when I candle. Unfortunately, one girl in each pen is currently sitting eggs. That could skew the result.

    Are you saying you trimmed their vents?

    Good Morning!

    I am looking at the EcoGlow 20 Chick Brooder. Has anyone used these and did you like it? My turkey eggs are due to hatch in another 2 weeks. Thinking this would be the way to go instead of a 250w lightbulb.

    Lisa :)

    Yep. Guess I could have said it a little better.

    Has anyone here used a little giant still air incubator with egg turner before? If so could you give me any tips and some things you did when you used it?
