let us know how it goes @prizepete
UPDATE please! @Jessimom
Ugh, I can't sleep. Is anyone even on? I keep thinking about all the chickens I'm going to be incubating and the new breeds I'm going to get and I'm fretting about how I'm going to coordinate the different batches of chicks in my coop. I'm also fretting about getting ducks for the first time and their different needs. Basically I need to stop thinking about chickens (is that even possible?) and go GO BACK TO SLEEP. But yet when I can't sleep I go a chicken forum so I think my sleep is screwed.
ducks ducks ducks!! you wont stop thinking of chickens or DUCKS! hope you got some sleep! @HenHoneyGirl
Good morning Sally!
Trapper was my favourite on MASH, I could relate to him. Always playing second fiddle!
And Natalie, what a wonderful, soulful, voice!
I am a dedicated head banger and hard rock enthusiast, but I can always find a place for blues, soul, and jazz when the mood strikes.
They were both good.

Put them in a zip lock bag, mix some crushed ice and a bit of water to form a slurry and submerge the bag in the ice for a few (5?) minutes to calibrate the temp.
I don't know how you would do the hygrometer, mine all have the remote probe and can be submerged in a salt mixture to calibrate, but there are several methods listed for this on page one.
you have a lot of guest this morning? prol cause cc was on all chatty like Why are you not like this when I am on? cause I take too much wall space ??

Hope everyone is having a good start to their Saturday!
Got a couple new EE mix peeps from the HAL so far... (Some experimental crosses for the mixed layer pen) Looks like I should have 2 walnut comb birds here with the slw X EE cross.
I still have 5 shipped eggs in lockdown on day 19, and 2 test eggs in the Brinsea from the splash Marans roo in my avy on day 15.
look how cute!!!!
I used a large heating pad (12' x 24") for the cave, and moved my 3 week old chicks to the other side of the brooder so the newborn chicks could use the Sweeter Heater. Newborns adapt to the SH immediately. The older chicks were a little leery of the HPC, but went to it as soon as the lights went out. I eased down there about 30 minutes after lights out, and all 15 were snuggled down beneath it. It appears to be working perfectly! I think I've found the perfect solution for staggered hatches (or should I say different aged chicks?).
All the chicks looked happy and healthy this morning!
Thanks for the compliment, and thanks for asking!!!
I love this heater pad
