The rules on the Brinsea contest were posted on POST #1
OVER, AND OVER I posted that the number of chicks you had hatched HAD TO BE POSTED BY THE SPECIFIED DATE AND TIME!
We won't count chicks posted after the specified time, NOR will we do a PM frenzy.
Obviously we will NEVER know how many chicks actually hatched, but what we will know is how many were reported by the specified date and time.
That said, we are all going to be up front about everything...
TWO PEOPLE guessed the number of chicks CLOSEST that would be hatched
As in all BYC guess the number contests, or guess the date and time, the person who posted the amount or time FIRST is the winner.
SO, silkie mom, made her guess on 3/17 and leisure made her guess on 3/18.
As Nifty and Brinsea offered the ONE and only incubator, only one prize can be given.
When we inquired if it were possible to get TWO, the response from our head honcho was this,
For the incubator, we'll need to go with whoever guessed / posted the guess first (we run into the same problem with "Guess the date" types of contests.)
So, the winner of the incubator is silkie mom.
I have lost my link to the spreadsheet, but I'm certain that SGC or Kathyinmo can find it to post here.
Congrats to silkie mom!
