We had gotten some eggs from a friend to help run two incubators worth of chicks. We didn't have as much success as we would have liked. Each incubator holds 40+ eggs and 35 hatched, so we kept 5 of them and gave her the rest. We are running another batch. I am hoping we get a better percentage this time. Its tough sometimes, you have to worry about the temperature, water in the incubators, then when they are hatching there is a process to that too. We did loose five right from the start. Of course Paul has a snake and he enjoys that part of this process.
