You know you can count on me with Tombstone every time.
That was back when he looked good!
sideWing, if you were to build Frankenbator all over again, what would you do differently and what would you do the same, assuming you had to buy materials?
I want to build a dedicated hatcher to sit on top of the GQF that is reliable and easy to clean, so I'm leaning toward a cooler based design. I like the flexwatt, it solves a lot of challenges, I just need to calculate the heating load. The STC1000s are great, I have a second one sitting idle. I definitely want viewing windows, and I have a slim USB laptop fan that I could use to circulate air ever so gently.
Does having the mechanicals in the removable lid pose any issues while handling eggs and chicks? The LGs were downright dangerous when it came to removing the lid and setting it aside as the element is painfully hot when on.
Ok, you got me..... your statement was correct. It just wasn't what I meant!

I started with a flock of 4 pullets 6 years ago. I now have 7 pens and 150 chickens. I incubate in a Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance. I have been on BYC for a while, mainly in the Incubating and Hatching section. I'm just making a place where some of my friends can hang out.

1. Any window left open must be jumped through

I grew up in SoCal suburbia where chickens came pre-packaged from a supermarket and eggs came from the store. Several years ago I convinced my husband to get a few contraband backyard hens and as they say, it all went downhill from there.
After the kids moved out on their own, we decided to sell everything, quit our jobs and move to New Mexico. So this is our transition year - I now have a great part-time job working from home, 13 chickens, two dogs,a huge garden and a bunch of cottonwood trees along the Rio Grande.
I watch who is opening and jumping through windows, and appreciate witty sarcasm.
