You can, but it is not necessary. Remember paper will absorb moisture and you want the moisture in the incubator now. A little bleach will clean the hatching mess.
Good Morning - think I am getting better as each hour passes now. Kind of felt it break in the chest yesterday afternoon. DH is leaving for Aitkin today. That means that I can do what I want to do when I want to do it. Not that I don't already. LOL
Got the okay to order wheels for that tractor that the neighbor made me. DH hates Tom attacking him. So that will be the free-ranging for the chickens - in the tractor. I am pretty happy about that.
All-in-all - this day is shaping up to be an Ivie-type of day. Love the cooler weather. Lots to do indoors also.
Poor Abused Tom Hanks! Locked in a tractor...... Glad your getting better.
and just to tempt you, I have some cute little Speckled Sussex staring out at me this morning...
LOL - you are tooo naughty. I LOVE the British girls that have come to stay with me and all three are hens! They are so curious and cuddly. In that week I was gone they changed alot in their feathering/coloring. I have introduced every one of the newbies (there are 11) to the high roost in the coop/run. They love it of course and are learning to access it on their own. So sorry to hear about Igor. I know they are just chickens but . . . . .
Today there are men working on putting in new electric poles in our front yard. All we have is front yard along the highway - LOL - because the river is just behind us. Like out our back door about twenty feet and then another twenty feet of river bank down. Big Lake is putting in a bike path from the town, and about one and a half miles out to Lions Park so preparation is being done to achieve that goal. I THINK the plan is to pave the other side of the highway - so I am not quite understanding why this side is getting new poles. So Tom Hanks is locked down to day too. He's not liking it.
