But the other 8 are bouncing around the tote so I'll graduate to the bigger brooder tote this afternoon.
For those of you with Brinsea Octo's - do you tear apart the top to clean it or just blow out the dust with canned air?
Have a great day everyone!
I have been taking mine apart most times. I didn't take it completely apart once, but remember asking SC if he did, and he said yes, especially after big hatches. The fluff gets up in there, above the fan, so I now take the time to take it apart. Hair dryer works fine too, if you don't have the can stuff.

I'm calling my wife Dr. Oz these days. She's been nursing chicks. This splayed leg baby is almost straight now but he won't let the wife set him him back in the brooder. He starts crying and runs back in her hands. She named him Band-Aid:
So cute! (gotta love Dr. Oz! )

WV I hope his checkup goes well! I hope all of the complications have passed for him..
Sorry about your 2 little babies Friday. I'm guessing it never gets easier, even though it's necessary. Hugs to you.
Good morning Oz! Awesome that your off this week! Glad Band aid's leg is better! So is Eve's!
Taxes....sorry! Baseball? YAY! Sounds like a lot of fun😊
So glad to hear Eve is better today!!
And since you asked, here's the hubby update - doc visit went great! Basically cleared him for anything he feels up to doing! I think he was happiest to be cleared to drink beer when he wants to. He's lost more weight and muscle mass, but he'll get all that back in time. The treadmill is already helping, and now I can be a little less "nurse" and a little more "wife".... ya know... "get up and get it yourself, you need the exercise!"

And since this is the wealthiest corner of the township, they have a lot of clout on the basis of tax revenue, and pretty much get their way at the board meetings. If they want to live in an HOA, I don't mind. Just remember that the HOA rules stop at the fence. Oh, that's right, they can't have fences.
That's exactly me! Our parcel was the original also, and we are technically outside the lines, but we have to drive through it to get to our house. We pay dues, for winter road cleaning and summer road sealing. No one has complained about my chickens yet (Armand, the loud mouth!) but if they do, I hope we don't get into a pizzing contest about boundaries.
