    My plates are coming tomorrow, so mind if I ask a question? My brooders have a 12" wall around the bottom, I can see how high to put the plates...did you worry about that or just set them at a certain height?

    Oh dear, I was kind of worried about that...[​IMG] I mean, I know you CAN see into the incubator through the big glass door, but I am sure it would be harder to keep a close eye on pipped eggs than through the top of a styrobater. Are you using the trays with hatching covers? In my Ova-Easy 190, it has 3 turning trays, and then space for 1 hatching tray on the bottom, and I am planning on doing a staggered hatch with 1 tray hatching each week. I am debating on whether to use the hatching tray cover because of the difficulty in seeing the eggs, and since the hatching eggs would be on the bottom shelf, I wasn't worried about them falling off. I know in big hatcheries they just wait until most of the chicks have hatched to remove them, but that is SO hard to do!!!! [​IMG]
