    Chickapockalypse

    Heya! I've always wanted chickens since I had a few growing up as a small child- and today I was given 3 fertile eggs and told good luck lol!

    I breed reptiles so I have an incubator, and I know I need to turn them- and I know it's 99-10 or so I've been told.

    Now I have no clue how old they are in egg, or if it matters, (3 weeks at most but prob not), or really how long it takes to hatch them.

    Also I know what the parents were so any idea on what the babies are gonna be?

    1 Barred Rock to a Rhode Island Red rooster
    2 Americana to same RIR rooster

    I'll be researching all tonight and tomorrow, of course, but has anyone hatched them from reptile incubators? How would I keep their humidity up without wetting the eggs?

    We are looking to get chickens this spring, how did the incubation go? This would be a amazing way to start raising chickens!
