I'll be putting my first eggs of the season into the incubator this evening.
I've got Welsummer and Ancona eggs to go in. I'm confident that the Welsummers should be fertile but I'm not so sure of the Anconas. Its going to be very much a case of suck it and see. I know its a silly question but how many medium sized eggs do you manage to fit into an Brinsea Octagon20? I'd like to stretch it and get two dozen in.
Here are the eggs that I've got ready to put in. There's quite a contrast. The egg top right is a special Light Sussex.
Not sure, my incubator is smaller. I just set it up and put in as many as I can. At the moment I have 6 duck eggs that are due to pip this week. I always leave a small gap between the eggs. The only issue I have had with space is when they hatch. They usually take a couple of days for all to hatch and needing to leave the tiddlers in the incubator to dry out with unhatched eggs mean space is tight! It usually works out ok.
If you google the make you should find the number it can take. This is never precise though I think as eggs vary in size. Hope you have success.
Trying to enjoy life as it is
