    I wish you alot of luck on your first hatch. You are going to love watching them come out of the egg Hatching never gets easier. this is my 6th time doing it and yet I am as nervous as I was the first time I hatched. I know you will have a great hatch though and in the end its all worth it [​IMG]

    My first hatch started on time. Good Friday.
    I love my 1588 bator. I have 3 chicks hatched. One was very very scary!

    I am using my brower again. I am always worried the temp and humidity is wrong on both hygrometers but they are only a .5F difference. Why should I be worried? I do not know lol. But to everyone who is hatching this week. I hope you all have a great hatch and please include some pics [​IMG] Thank you
