You're welcome. Just relax, good or bad each hatch is a learning experience. Are you hatching eggs from your own flock?

I haven't seen black cats here in years.

Then it's all done.

Yes, from my own flock. It definitely is a learning experience, if one of these eggs hatches I've learned never to do this again! 😂😂😂 makes you wonder how the heck the hen does it!

She was making the same point you are - the level expected of an average reader now. All of that being said, a word needs to be useful to be used, and if it is used, it will be remembered. I like $10 words, but mostly ones that are interesting and useful.

 

I looked them all up at the time, and STILL don't remember what most of them mean even after doing that (except retromingent - that was kinda gross...). That being said, I liked mephitic (autocorrect made it into mephitis above). It means stinky. :D

I want to remember mephitis as well. I looked it up when I responded.

More than stinky, mephitic specifically means poisonous, toxic and foul-smelling. REALLY stinky. The latin name for the skunk is Mephitis mephitis...

 

When I looked it up, there were some pretty brutal insults using retromingent that I may keep in mind... :gig

I actually use the Dremel tool itself, on about 10 - 15,000 speed. Works well. The Chicken Chick has some nice instructions. She recommends microwaving it afterwards for about a minute (in 10 second bursts) to sterilize.

Yup, gotta agree there. @Ladyfarm , you will be tempted to "help" if nothing happens after pipping. The urge will be nearly uncontrollable. Just sit on your hands - come on here if you want to be distracted or talked out of messing with them. They do best when left alone. (The notes do suggest when it's time to help, of course - some people don't ever help, though.)

 

Speaking of hatching... Look what we have here! Seems like someone is saving GNH eggs out of Tank's coop now that I've gotten two eggs two days in a row...

 

 

 

Pullet eggs or not, if I'm not careful, these might fall into the incubator...
