you could cut out egg cups from a carton and dont turn the turner on for the first day or so, it all depends on air cells. You need to have them upright if air cells are screwy.
Anyone else have this mini brinsea, suggestions?
oh NO!!!! I am so sorry!!! not again! OMGGGGGGGGGG
I am so sad!! brahma!! and all the sweet breeds you have!! oh no!!! what did the neighbors say? they owe you for them you know that!
They are going to pay for replacement eggs. It's just heartbreaking because I was attached to those babies and now I have to start all over I'm trying not to be angry with them for being irresponsible with their dogs but it's hard.
We are back to hatch at our Assisted Living Senior Living! This year we have moved to the Cottages which is a Assisted Living and Memory Care, in northeast Wisconsin. We will be setting 24 eggs total at two different locations with 85 Seniors enjoying the experience. My name is Phil, and you may know me as "Ridgeline Hens" So Glad to be apart of the bigger picture!
I am so happy to see you guys back. You brought tears to my eyes last year. It was great to see the joy those chicks brought your residents!
