Yeah, much as it's gonna, I think. 98-100. Don't like the 98 but I'll settle for it since that's not internal egg temp.

Maybe try just a new wafer, since they're not so expensive?

Also wonder if my bulbs are just plain too hot.... But they worked the last three hatches. hu.gif

2 layers of that bubble wrap insulation stuff. Yes, I actually closed all of em (was too lazy to cut a bazillion liddle holes in the 2nd insulation layer) as I figgered if fanning the lid 5x per day for turning dont give enough oxygen, there's something funny goin on...

(Lid isn't airtight either)

How are these working out so far?

I think it will work, right now they are separated from the goats, but I pray it does work because I am thinking since my coops are small more like breeding pens I may do the pvc elbows in these thinner but tall containers.  thoughts?  if Ifind containers large enough I can fill them at the food storage and not have to lug feed around, just fill each feeder as needed, HOWEVER the lid and locking is a big deal with the goats, not sure what type of lid will work, the 5 gal buckets lids fit tight and secure, not sure that a goat wont be able to open something like these...

holds 40lbs the mason below.... screw top lid may work. trouble is they dont have the dimentions of the products, they come in three sizes.  THEY ARE NOT CHEAP!

i could stick with 5 gal buckets with lids and get this opener, for easier opening

I wish I knew someone that used this 35lb  cat litter box  but not sure on the lid keeping closed with goats

This alt value should not be empty if you assign primary image

Most of those feed container lids come off fairly easy, the ones meant to stay outside, usually for bird seed might work.

So what is on your agenda today?
Nice. Ohh, that's cold, though I guess it would feel nice after single digits.

Let's see, clean the duck pool, do my schoolwork, maybe fiddle with the bator, put bedding in the run, fix the leaks in the waterer I made and plan next year's garden.
