    Cool! Thanks for joining us!
    I'll be doing a dry hatch... 35-45% humidity through incubation and 60% at lockdown. Seems to work for me.
    What type of humidity will you be doing?

    I usually do the same, I'm calibrating my hygrometer right now.

    good looking setup! Is that home made? I always wanted to try home making one. But I'm not talented enough.. ;)
    Now to bring my big ole bator in the house and get it going... Its to cold in the garage to incubate.


    Anybody else setting soon?

    I just picked up 6 Ameracauna eggs and 1 Olive Egger egg from the post office [​IMG] I am currently in the process of constructing a really crappy homemade incubator :/ (Any advice would be greatly appreciated) I am hoping to set them by tonight or tomorrow morning. This is my first hatching experience! I am so excited!
