Mahonri's 3rd Annual, BYC Easter Hatch-a-long! - Page 294

post #2931 of 11360

I'm a little confused with the Brinsea contest. On page one it says "how many will we set?" which I guessed at, then on the contest page the Brinsea contest is for how many will we hatch? Is there two contests? Or did I just make a ridiculously high stab at it?

Even chickens dare to hatch an egg.

Made from all recycled materials (except for the pipe clamps, mine were too small).  DH put ithe deer feeder on the scrap pile because the motor burned out, the pipe was laying around and the feeder and 's' hook were on a shelf in the feed room.  It will hold up to 200 lbs of feed!  I keep it under a shed were the tractor is parked so the rain will not wet the food.

 


Hmmm, with a feeder that size, I could get a lot more chickens!  Way to enable, Wisher! lol.png

There are two contest, one to guess number of eggs set, the Brinsea contest is how many will hatch.

Can I re-do my hatch guesses? When I signed up there were not as many people signed up, so my guess is really, low. 

 

 

In case Brinsea is reading I did buy 2 mini echo's for this hatch in the last month. A third wouldn't hurt. ;)

 

 

I'm caught up!!

 

and I have frizzle and silkies hatching today hopefully!!

Lots of pets. Not enough chickens, a bad hatching addiction and a great DH. ;)I SWEAR I'm gonna unplug the incubator soon. I NOW sell hatching eggs/chicks/chickens!!. Serama 3 coat types, Hedemora, Tolbunts 2 frizzled pens,1 smooth. Cream-Crestedlegbar, Isbars, Oladnsk Dwarf, SQ Mille Fluer d'uccles, Cuckoo Silkies, Russian Orlaff, SFH, Rhodebars, Bielefelders, Partridge Barthuners, White...

We still don't have everyone added to the map... follow the directions to add yourself in my signature! If you can't figure it out, PM me your location (town only, I don't need your full address) and where in your state that town's located so I can find it.

 

We have a few international hatchers joining us, I love that!

And only one American out to sea. That's an improvement.

That's looks like a really nice incubator. 

 

I ordered the ecoglow-50 and the ecoglow-20 for the hatch. I have the 50, the 20 is on backorder. I was able to get an ecoglow-20 from Meyers hatchery though.

We are a chatty bunch!!


And I've been doing most of my viewing/reading on my iPad which is more difficult to use with this site so I've not made as many of the posts/replys as I normally would have or our number would be much higher wink.png

Of course many of my posts have been doubled because I am using my iPad so maybe it balances out gig.gif

Well since DH is plotting more breeding pens I may need another incubator. Sounds like I better visit the Brinsea page and see what kind of trouble I can get into.

How many Icelandic pullets do you have?  How old are they?  You may be overrun with "incubators" before you know it!!
