    I'm very excited to try incubating for the first time! Incubator should be here soon I'm checking the tracking everyday! [​IMG] I am kind of nervous though, wondering if I should try some eggs that I really want, like BLRW or some olive eggers, or go for something not so special for the first time using it :?
    So thankful for all the great info on here, I'm reading and reading and reading.... [​IMG]

    Which incubator did you order? [​IMG]

    I would highly recommend incubating cheap eggs for your first go round, just my 2 cents. [​IMG]

    I ordered a GQF Hovabator 1602 with the automatic egg turner, I had limited budget and found one for $65 on ebay [​IMG] I asked on here prior to ordering and seemed like for my budget it was the best bet.

    Bantam what eggs are you incubating for first time?

    I will take your advice and do some cheap eggs, maybe just try 2 or 3, now I just need to find some local hatching eggs for sale [​IMG]

    I am doing chamois sebrights cos I couldn't wait and do something I wasn't fussed about as my chicken capacity is limited, so I'm just doing the birds I really really want. [​IMG]
