I washed the car, and got the gravel out of the driveway (Gravel is dangerous to bikers!! YEAY!!!). Then my husband came home, and on our way to Altoona (
Outback! Yeay!) he asked, "Would you be interested in an incubator?"
Apparently the woman had used it once, fried her duck eggs, and put it in the closet. If he gets it, I will DEFINITELY be here asking a million questions (I think I know what I am doing, but the first time is gonna be scary!
So, I had an awesome day yesterday (oh, and I bought a fishing net)!!

EDIT: And a pond is a geese magnet and just 2 geese can turn 2.5 acres into a poopy mess in a short period of time. My Aussie chases the geese, but somehow he recognizes that the chickens don't need to be chased. Animals are smarter than we think.
20 year old fish? Wow!

I use three turners, but could build racks on pivots with a hand Turner device amd easily fit more eggs. 10 dozen is enough ( too many). Water bottles in bottom to help stabilize temp, fan in top pointed up spaced with wine corks.
The fridge was free. It had been through a flood and ruined. Door has large double pane plexiglass window from an old piece I found laying around.
So....if I come up with the parts...you'll build it for me?

The wheels are a turning....
Do you have any idea how many chicks you'd wind up with????? So much for downsizing!
