    I just got eggs in the incubater. Got 18 in mail none cracked. They are in. Time to cross fingers I guess. I hope it is ok to open to put water in. I started out with some. So when that is gone I guess I just add more.. 20 in the bator.

    Thanks

    Hope the hatch goes well.
    Mailed eggs expect 50% hatch rate (but could be more).
    Follow the instructions for the incubator as regards the water, they all vary.


    Good Luck,
