Not yet. Still looking for a good incubator . Want to try hatching Silkie eggs and Peking duck eggs. I might sneak some of my Japense bantam eggs in there too but don't tell my boyfriend !

I just put in 2 silkies and 2 polish's. Already had a few batches of button quails hatch and my last batch is due in 3 days. So fun!

All out of my 5 dollar homemade incubator. Lol

I am looking forward to receiving a batch of Serama eggs hopefully in a week or so. (I also am collecting eggs from my Seramas here at home that will go in the 'bator in a few days.) And for spring I am very likely ordering barnevelder, cream leghorn, golden cuckoo maran, and maaaybe some Russian orloffs. The last wasn't planned but the farm I picked has them too and after looking into them they look like really interesting birds... I'm still deciding which breeds I like and want to keep. I'll be moving out the buff orpingtons and partidge rocks so I can do this without growing my flock too much. Those two groups of birds just weren't what I was looking for.

I have a HovaBator... but in all honesty I don't recommend it. I had to move it a dozen times to the "perfect" location just so it wouldn't randomly spike to 102-103 degrees whenever it felt like it.

Oh my that doesn't help my situation. Lol just kidding. I want one so bad but don't really need it as my homemade one works good for me. Maybe if I see one at a good price.
