    Congrats!

    You could hatch a couple silkies with your layers. I've done that under a broody hen and in an incubator and they actually do quite well.

    I bought what I thought would be the best candler on the planet, a Brinsea OvaScope, it sucks with brown shells.

    HYGROMETER &
    THERMOMETER SUGGESTIONS.......


    you may want to pick up a hygro/thermo that has a high low temp reading on it as well... that way you can see what it swings to at night.

    READ what the accuracy is on the one you want to purchase FIRST (example: Accuracy to ±0.9°F (±0.5°C))

    READ what increments the temperature tracks!! (example: reads to 0.1ºF NOT 1.0ºF)

    AND MAKE SURE its Switchable between ºF and ºC. or whitch ever you need!

    Is it calibrated or can it be calibrated?


    The Egg-O-Meter has a sensor that is embedded in a synthetic egg which closely reflects the temperature of a real egg.

    From: $24.99 http://incubatorwarehouse.com/index.php ... l?___SID=U

    The temperature sensor is embedded inside a synthetic egg which more accurately resembles the thermal mass of the eggs you are incubating.

    We have a large family too..just getting used to not having so much noise. 12 kids between the two of us. The last baby just got engaged. Now, it's just me and my DH. Noise? Hmmm, do lots and lots of grandchildren count? Oh yeah! :)

    Wow, you had a lot in. I had 7 in lock down, 6 hatched..one is having a bit of a problem. It's getting the Poly V. Wants that neck turned to the right a bit. I should get photos. I love the leghorn mixes, with the black spots. :)
