"The way I have things set up for incubating/hatching is this.. 3 tabletop incubators and a separate hatcher that I thoroughly disinfect with antibacterial soap and copious amounts of oxine after cleaning. I incubate the eggs and when they are within about 3 days of hatch, I transfer them to the cleaned and disinfected hatcher and bump humidity right before I suspect they'll begin to pip. I don't use the incubators for hatching but clean them out periodically too."

Thanks for explaining your setup....now I feel foolish... :chairhide:  =D  :thanks:

Not foolish at all! I should have been more clear but I thought you made an excellent and extremely valid point. Thank you!! :wise:

Don't feel foolish at all, YB - I put the same thing on her because I did just that last year and had an absolutely terrible hatch. That was a hard learned lesson. But after quizzing her I had found that DG knows a thing or two about incubation... not to worry!  In fact, I believe I'll let her hatch all my chicks.  :funny:

What a lovely compliment.. thank you Glen! :happycrowd"

The last egg hatched this morning!!!!! :hatch::excited::thumbsup::cheer:

That's ten new EO chicks!!!! Yay!!!
