At present I have an incubator full of hatching eggs in the automatic egg turner. These eggs were not all put in at the same time so my plan is to use the electric skillet for the last days the incubation period.
I have three sets of hatching eggs in the incubator all at different time frame–one set is due to stop rotation tomorrow so they will be going into the electric skillet. This set came from my Buff Orpingtons and Dark Brahmas. Next week, Friday, I have 15 that are due to stop rotation and I plan on using the electric skillet for them also. This set was purchased from a breeder in SC so I have money invested in these and definitely want them to be successful.
I’m thinking this should work because now I have the hydrometer and thermometer in place to monitor the humidity and temperature. I sure hope so. I know other people who have used an electric skillet for the whole incubation period successfully so surely I can make it just for three days. Time will tell and I will keep you updated.
