The 7th Annual BYC Easter Hatch-A-Long! - Page 905
I think I will. I wish I had a second 'bator. Maybe for my Christmas this year.
You only have one incubator
I thought the min. was two, maybe three or so...
We all have to start somewhere.
Oh, that's awesome! Let me know if you want turners, my FIL has a 3D printer and can custom make them.
I live in Wisconsin in the path of this ugly snowstorm set to hit over the next 2 days. Warnings of high winds and power outages have me stressing out over my babies set to hatch for Easter...trying something new - quail and pheasants. At last candling, I had 20 that looked good. To have a power outage at this point when they only have a few days to go would be absolutely heartbreaking.
So my question to anyone...Any creative ways to keep heat in your bator if power goes out? I've got a small forced air hovobator. How long can the little guys make it if the temp drops a few degrees?

I am locking down tonight - it will actually be the middle of day 19 for me, I set on Friday morning. I did this last week and it worked perfectly - first pip on Wednesday evening, and first chick hatched on Thursday morning! Looking forward to some different breeds in this hatch - Bielefelders, Jubilee Orps, Swedish Flower Hens, and some Polish Ameraucana crosses from my own flocks!
Ooo, nice babies on the way!
I'm in lock down now!
Do you have your straight jacket on too?
