I got these plus I got one that had cats.  They had a really cute goat one. But, I don't have goats.   I'm not sure the link I posted is the exact one that I got, but the one I"m offering was made by a guy in Poland.  So, they do ship internationally.  The roosters came from China, the cats from Poland.  

Mom to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, 1 dog, 2 cats, LOTS of fish and an ever growing chicken flock.  Laying hens - 3 RIR, 3 BSL, 3 EE, 2 Delaware, 2 BR and 1 backyard EE mix.  6 wk old babies - 1 NHR, 1 BO (Maybe a Roo), 1 Dominique, 1 BA, 5 EE girls, and 1 EE boy.  Breeding silkies 3 white hens, 1 blue/grey hen, 1 black roo.  Tiny chicks too many to count.

For humidity....I don't think it's all that necessary to keep it level any time except for Lockdown.  I adjust it on air cell size.  Only the really dark brown eggs I was more careful.  My house runs pretty much 25 to 30%.  We've been up around 45 since it's been so overcast.  In my LG and my Incuview the ambient humidity had more effect.  The Brinsea is sealed much tighter and the humidity pump runs occasionally, just to keep it at 30.  It the lock down that used to be so hard - humidity would be 85% at bedtime, then 45% the next morning.  I'd add water and bump it to 85% again, then when I got home from work it would be 30%.  But I found a solution....

 

What finally helped me in the Incuview and LG was I had an empty fishtank that I kept heated, I took a mason jar and made 2 holes in the cover, floating it in the fishtank.  I half filled the jar with water, stuck fishtank tubing connected to an air bubbler to blow  air into the warm water in the jar, making it bubble.  Then I had another tube collecting that moist air  feeding it into the 'bator.  

I forgot, I also have an Incuview that looks just like this one.  I LOVE hatching in this because you can see EVERYTHING.  I just prefer the upright turners in the Brinsea and LG.   You have a great set up.  I especially love the cage  I have to keep my chicks in the bathroom since I have a new very curious kitten.  I just have a large rubber made bin they hang out in until they get a little bigger..  This latest batch wouldn't come out from under the heat plate, so I threw a towel over half of it, and they have started venturing out.  When I pull the towel off, they stay hidden.  

 

Well, the humidity is holding steady for us, even if a bit high around 50%. I may steal some tubing from the husband's stash to add water during lockdown when needed :) It just makes sense! 

 

With the cage, I'm kinda hoping I can fabricate a cover for one end to block drafts and set the whole thing in the coop with the rest of the flock (with their electric hen of course) to help speed things along as far as integration and stimulation. That's something else I need to get sorted out before the chicks arrive :lol: 

Slave to 5 dogs and 8 chickens, and 13 chicks from my NYD Hatch...plus whatever might be in my incubator at any given time...

I got tubing that was a little bigger, just big enough to fit over my turkey baster.  I was able to put in water a lot faster that way!  Good luck!!!!  Just curious, won't you other hens peck any type of cover you put over the cage?  ANYTHING new I put in the coop my girls peck to death.  So, I'd make sure the cover is strong and durable!  I can't wait to see wee little chick pictures!

The link was correct, thanks for sharing it! Love that rolling pin.

No, if anything, mine will run from the new thing LOL I was just thinking about using some cardboard and then covering partly with a small tarp. I really need to measure and make sure it will fit where I want it. Otherwise, I'll need to get my introduction pen back from my friend and try to figure out how to get it back in their run. I don't think it'll fit through the gate and undoing zip ties from the netting and loosening a kennel panel isn't my idea of a good time LOL

 

Good idea on the turkey baster! I hope my chickies make it! Especially the little potential naked necks. I can't wait to see them hatch and take photos and videos and spam all my friends!
