Yes, my "e" is always missing there....lol Too often we type like we talk, and I'm a bad one for that...lol  Yes and no, you "join". And then you build boards. I think you search and find pns w/o joining, but you can't pin....I think....Between recipes and chicken stuff, I have most everything covered....lol  You can find ideas for just about anything on Pinterest. I use it a lot for homeschooling too, not to mention cake designs.....I could go on and on....lol

It was never in lockdown, was turned the whole time, and I never raised humidity. It hatched out fine. That's two this year that've done that. I think they're tougher than we give them credit for.

I agree.

Congrats on the hatcher!! Glad it was an easy assist.
