Okay, here's the story. My RIR just started laying last week and our neighbor's roo has been breaking into our yard to "party" with our girls except the RIR is the only one getting over the fence to actually meet him. Today I came home and she had laid her egg in the leaves under the old tree and her and her boyfriend were sitting on my picnic table sharing a snack, lol. So I took the egg and right away I thought I'd try to hatch it but I don't have anything to use. Then I had a light bulb moment and thought I could use a heating pad. That only lasted a few hours because the pad has 2 hour shut off. So, after dinner I thought what else do I have that stays heating until I turn it off. Another light bulb idea, I just had dinner in the crock pot so that'll have to work! It has a warm setting so I'm testing the temp and we'll see if it works. I have it wrapped in a damp wash cloth for humidity. If you have any advice, please by all means offer it. I have no idea what I'm doing. edited: I have a pic but there's no way of my uploading it. Are there technical problems with the site?
