Thanks Velvet, the chicks already hatched are so cute! What kind of incubator do you use?

We have two identical Little Giant model 9200 still-air incubators. One we have upgraded to forced-air by installing a fan kit. We haven't really noticed a difference at hatch time between the two, although forced-air units are supposed to be better!

12 Chicks right now with two more on the way! One Birchen Marans, Two Buff Brahmas, six Light Brahmas and three blue/gray Giant Cochins hatched so far. :)
