Backyard Chickens Incubator Has Started!

A few Cochin Bantams, Cherry Eggers, and Cuckoo Marans eggs. Twenty one days from today 2014 first batch of Chicks. This is my favorite time of year! I will be adding a few more eggs in our incubator over the next two days. Thermostat set at 100 degrees at 70% humidity. I have an automatic egg turner that shifts eggs 5 times a day. Eggs need to be turned at least 4 times a day or the chick becomes deformed and also will stick to the egg shell.
