    Quote:I have to say, I incubated this spring for the first and probably only time. In order to do it again I would need a MUCH better incubator and more importantly SOMEWHERE TO PUT ALL THE CHICKS!! Holy COW I wish I had known. I ended up with 13 out of 18 giving me a total of 50. I think I will just let Mother Nature do her thing. It will be difficult enough staying at the 50 number with only natural hatching I think. My three new girls have each done an egg a day, and they are ENORMOUS! I didn't think chickens layed turkey eggs!!!
