Ahh lovely!! An R-Com?? I am very envious, those are so fancy smile.png

Same here. I didn't plan to but it works out quite well.
The incubator I use to incubate the eggs with I like very much because it's easier to clean than the one that I use to hatch in which I prefer to use to hatch in because it has a clear top and I can monitor the eggs better that way.

I have a bit of a system going and it's great, had good successful hatches this way.

Haha thanks! The UPS has saved me many a time. I'll wake up to hear the house silent all for the ups beeping away to let me know it's powering my little babies.

Yep - lovely. Until you realize that it doesn't turn the eggs quite right, and you have a lot more malpositioned chicks than you should... I'm not focusing on being infuriated at that (and associated cost), and making lemons into lemonade instead, as it is a delightful hatcher (with that big window), and the Brinsea is a nightmare to clean after a hatch... Sort of like you have with yours.

 

(I think I need to look into getting a UPS, now that I think about it - I'll be away a lot early on if these eggs fall into this 'bator...)

 

And on that note, I'm fading and should go. Ta ta, all - see you tomorrow! :frow

 

Eruedraith - sorry we're all going to bed just as it's afternoon for you. Maybe Benny can keep you company if he's around - he's in Israel (though he might be at work, it's morning there). He can teach you everything you ever want to know about rhinos. And food. Lots about food. :D

My work in the student foreign exchange field taught me that people's values are very similar regardless of where they come from.
That work also showed me the difference in the bulk of educational systems.
The majority our colleges are excellent while the majority of our primary and secondary schools in the US leave students largely unable to make the leap to college.
The system in many other industrialized countries is more seamless between grades.

Whether in primary, secondary or adult education, it is so easy to get lost here.

They had all been moving and rocking until today. I only witnessed 2 of them moving. Totally normal? Or should I be worried? I mean, I am worried 😬😬😬 but should I stop!?! No pips, no peeping in shell. Also I had read in the incubation thread to keep the temp at 98-98.5 degrees for the last three days. I have a still air, should I bump it to 99-99.5? Thanks in advance!
No need to worry now. Any damage done is already water under the bridge.

IMHO, those temps are way too high. One must always consider that a thermometer can be off.
Commercial hatcheries use 99.5. That is ideal and what forced air should be. A still air uses the temp of 100.5 IF measured at the top of the egg. That would make internal temp at the center 99.5. So in a still air, it is all about where the temperature is being measured.
An embryo can survive at 98 but can die at 104. If you are measuring 102 and it is off by 2F, it could be 104.
If you're measuring 100 and it is off by 2F, the embryos will survive regardless of whether it is high or low.
Toward the end of incubation, embryos have some metabolism that allows them to deal with larger temporary swings.
The key word is temporary. A long time at high or low temps is always a problem.

Well, here's all I can tell you about quarantine. Ideally it is 40 days as far from your flock as possible.1/4 mile is ideal.
That isn't possible for most people. None of my birds has ever died from a disease so let's consider outcomes. If that bird had a disease, it isn't one likely to show up but it could be one your birds aren't resistant to. So even after quarantine, if a bird that is resistant and brings in a disease he may never show symptoms during quarantine, but it could still impact the home flock. Quarantine won't impact that.
My best advice is to look him over closely for lice and mites (which my birds don't have) and then do with him what you would do to protect your birds from frostbite.
I just don't think the temperature is the problem. I still have a hen that wants to sleep in a building all by herself. I'll get some pictures of some roosters and their housing.

Is that main coop heated?
I'd still keep him somewhere cool/cold because re-acclimation would be an issue if brought into somewhere warm.
If he already has frostbite, he'll likely lose some comb and wattle but he'll survive.

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. big_smile.png

I want to remember mephitis as well. I looked it up when I responded.
The Sumatra is the little one of all species only 500-800 kg.
Indeed people can" fall in between cherries " as we say here, and this is exactly way we do this evaluation cessions, to reduce that to the possible minimum.

Then it's all done.

exactly!
But if so many unrelated people, want to do it, maybe leaving of the grid in the Midwest is the right way to
live?
