    I'll pull mine tomorrow afternoon and set down cheese cloth to catch any shells. I hope my humidity is ok. Never could find a gauge small enough to safely fit in the incubator that didn't cost a lot. I'll spray with a warm mist through the vent every day as well as filling all water areas and adding a small sponge. The current gauge never gets over 35 even when I know it's higher so I'm playing this by ear, sight and just plane intuition.

    I wish I wish..that we had a Trader Joes around here. I have children that live up north, but still nor real close by to one. I have a daughter that said she has a friend that shops there, and maybe she can pick some up for her. I will have to make a point to ask for this to happen as we get close to the set date! This would be a great set of eggs to try!
    Man, I want some hens that out lay all the others. lol.. That's the leghorn in there!
