    I have not hatched any peeps in a year or so. I have now decided to give it another go. I have ordered a new incubator that is supose to be for professional aviary breeders. It looks a bit like a very small wine cooler. It's about 18" x 18" x 24" in size and sits on your table top. I am very anxious to see how well it works.
    I tried for two years to have consitant hatches in everything from LG's, Hovabators, cainet incubators and the best luck I had was with a old pancake style metal brower that I dearly loved. Never should have sold it as it was nearly fool proof. [​IMG]
    Oh well, now we shall see what modern technology can do for my tallent at screwing things up, lol. Wish me luck!
    LF Cochins are the goal.

    Actually, Pumpkinpup IS a pro, LOL! [​IMG] She probably has more hatching experience on more types of bators than most of the folks on the forum.


    Pumpkinpup - Hey there lady! Hope all is well with you. Sending you good hatching vibes . . . [​IMG]

    Quote:Hey there Jenski! Great to hear from you. Hope the winter has treated you well. We had a rough one here and are in the middle of blackberry winter now.
    I set 14 LF cochins this morning and 6 assorted marans from my own birds in the LG. Fingers crossed that all goes well. I'm using the LG until the new bator arrives.
    How many lovelies do you have in your flock now? I am up to 18 hens and 3 roosters. I have plans to build really swanky digs for everyone as soon as the weather warms up a bit but I am sure it won't be nearly as nice as the utopia you created for your girls [​IMG]
