    If the OP is still around, or anyone else who has gone this route, I have a couple of questions regarding the tubs.

    What size tub do you usually use for the females to lay in? The standard size or a larger/deeper one? Do you breed in the tub and just let the whole process happen in the same tub or switch them to a larger/deeper tub later? I'm fascinated by this.

    All of the breeding and incubation took place in a 41 quart tub. The size isn't important as long as they feel secure. I wouldn't switch them to a new tub later because that might cause them to abandon the nest.

    Right. Cool. I plan on starting our breeding projects late 2015, and the more I read the more I want to start with maternal incubation. Thanks

    Well, thanks to both Quiet Tempest and Mike Cavanaugh for all the information addressing the pros and cons of both types of egg incubations! Obviously they are both versed and professional and we are now better informed. Thanks again to the both you!! Stay in peace and not pieces. A.C.

    Re: Maternal Incubation

    This is the best thing I've ever read on here. I never really considered breeding because I was told MI was a no go, but now I really want to make it a part of my future seems like a beautiful process. I am curious, though...how does feeding during brooding work?
