I just want to thank all of you knowledgeable folks with all of the incubation advice. I've been reading up on back threads dated back the beginning of the new BYC. A friend of mine recently gave me a LG incubator. She had bought the fan for it but never put it in. So, DH put in the fan and I disinfected it to the best of my ability. Plugged it in and let the temp stabilize. During this time, I 'made' a water weasel out of ziplock bags. Found a few river rocks to prop the egg carton with and to help stabilize the temp. So now, I'm incubating my first batch of eggs from my own chickens! The temp is holding steady, the water weasel thing is just the coolest! I'm keeping the humidity around 40%. So exciting and nerve wracking! Can't wait to see how I do. DH is gonna build me a homemade incubator too! Thanks to all the info and great ideas that have been shared here.
