ive just ordered a new incubator off of flee bay it has all the readings on the front on screen for temp and % of humidity,.......it cost £130 (inc postage)

im hoping ive made a good investment as I want too hatch a few geese eggs and fatten them up for xmas auctions .....the incubator holds  48 chicken eggs so will probably only hold 24 goose eggs........im then going to breed poults for saleing and eating maybe.....

any tips would be greatly received as im first time starting out with all this incubator stuff......

many thanks

I wont :laugh: It's been a few years since I have hatched any eggs, it was usually goose eggs and lizards :D Just ensure the moisture levels are correct and you don't have a power cut, I lost a batch of gecko eggs due to a power cut.......

Stopped breeding leopard geckos and bearded dragons about 4 year ago,cost of electric and food etc.
Its a fickle market now and animals fall out of fashion quick so prices fall quick,and everyone jumps on the bandwagon breeding as well.
One tip if a lizards eggs shrivel or sink,put damp sphagnum moss over them,and it seems to bring them back,always had 100 percent hatch rate.
