I was an innocent bystander, just living vicariously through others that were enjoying hatching, then I started looking. I mean what harm can come from looking at incubators? It would be nice to have one when a broody quits on you or you want to try to get something really rare, right? I mean, I won't start hatching every egg I find will I? Well, I just caved and bought a hovabator genesis 1588 with the whole deal: LCD display, egg turner, quail racks, and 30 quail eggs to get started with (came with the package). I don't even know about quail, but they came with it so I am going to learn really fast. Why do I feel like I just gave into the dark side? Here is to all of you, enablers all. I hope you are all ready for the bazillion questions I have as I enter into this brave new world of incubation and the requests for eggs as I become progressively more and more addicted. I am sure I will be chronicling the adventure on a blog somewhere. Here we goooooooo..... Total incubation newbie ready for the onslaught of advice from those who have gone before! What are the pitfalls? What are the cool tips you can pass along? How do I hide the ebay egg buying compulsion from my loved ones (or do I just insist on their acceptance)?
