Arucana Hatching

A lady I met provided me with Arucana eggs, but unfortunately my hens were not broody enough, so we had to build an incubator. We used a filing cabinet and other than not really being able to keep the humidity up enough it works pretty good. All the eggs are various shades of robins egg blue. Isn't nature beautiful! Now we are just waiting and of course checking the temp and humidity all the time (which is a family project, since we put the incubator in the bathroom!) and turning the eggs several times a day too!
