    Hello first im going to introduce myself I live in Nor. Cal and I have a few hens and a rooster ell mutts and some pheasants and just hatched some bobwhite quail and have 6 of them. I have a LG and not very many sources for hatching eggs except internet but the shipping is horrible so where do you all get cheaper hatching eggs? Off topic but how do you get the humidity up on the LG with the pan already full Its still air?

    Welcome to BYC.

    Humidity - add a wet sponge or a soaked athletic sock - both should be new and never used.

    Eggs - look in the Buy/Sell/Trade hatching eggs area. You will see eggs listed for sale. Also you can list a wanted to buy thread for the eggs you want, too.
