    So im so excited were on day 8 for our chicken eggs an day 15 for duck eggs (in the same incubator) i got impatient last night.an candled all 48 eggs are fertile.
    We had a LG incubator last year had a zero hatch rate hard to keep tempan humidity up so we decided on an automatic. I convinced my brother to fill with 48 eggs sure we would only have half fertile he turned white as a ghost lol when we checked them.
    We have duck, silkie BO warren an red silkie eggs.
    Just wanted to share as we were gutted last year with totally failed hatch. Hope everyone elses is gping well
