    As you may know I have been incubating eggs with a heating blanket that I made into an incubator.

    i found veins in the egg after i candled! They are at around 99 right now and the humidity is around 50!

    I wish i could add pics but its too faint for my camera I will be adding soon!

    ANY TIPS? If anyone lives in missouri and wants to check them out maybe help me out a bit that would be cool!

    BTW i got these from my teacher and she says their a variety. See if you can guess what they are.

    That is sooooo cool! What a terrific and clever idea I have not seen before...

    I have my first duck eggs (on day 7 now) in my purchased incubator, but I can't wait to see yours hatch now, too! How exciting it all is.

    Please keep us all updated as I know I will be "watching" this thread~~for sure.

    Oh, how interesting!

    Did you poke a few holes in the lid for ventilation, like in a bug jar?

    THERE is a big whole in the back and they can breath but I moved them and I can see veins! im so happy I thought they were not growing. but they where right now my success rate is 5/6 are growing. So [​IMG] cross those fingers and I will be editing and updating the Title for the appropriate day!
