    (First put "Personal", if you would like to share that type of stuff. [Ex. Name, location] Then do incubator type, ["Incubator"] Then eggs currently set, ["Eggs"] then put whatever notes or links to stuff you want bookmarked underneath. Numbers should just be whatever # you are down, (ex: the person above you is 26, you are 27, next person is 28) it makes it easier to just be able to remember your number and scroll to it. Put a link to your profile by that. [blue username] )
    Example: (Pink words are describing what each thing is)



    The blue link should be a link to your profile.

    Incubator: DIY BinBator, spin-off of Sally's coolerbator This should be whatever type of incubator you have.
    Eggs: EE This is what type of eggs you currently have in. If you are always hatching something, just put "Always hatching!"
    Other: FKA Bubbles12345. This is just a place to link to whatever you want to remember or have noted.

    Eggs: RSL x BCM
    Other: friend, helper and humor on the thread! kwhites is in dire need of a construction class overwinter, so he can get his prefab china made coop out of his bedroom come spring. Still not sure why he had to make the run as predator-proof as he could with welded wire skirting & hardware cloth, motion-detector lights, & keep a rifle handy, along with a Hav-A-Hart trap if its in his bedroom though. Kwhites has blind pigs, not sure why but to each is own post #1042 kwhites enjoys his ignorant cellular device [​IMG] Kwhites says its too cold for roosters this time of year, the wussys post #1605 Note: if I ever need help, drive along highway looking for a quad with a guy standing between the doors makin' puddles!

    Personal: For the record... in case my screen name doesn't give it away (sound of a rooster)... I'm a hard-headed male.
    Incubator: Incuview
    Eggs: HRIR
    Brooder: large enough to brood a calf, with sweeter heater!
    Other: I recently met a fellow that lives about 9 miles away with a lovely flock of PBR. He sells his eggs for $2 per dozen... and they're fertilized. My goal is to practice on a couple of batches before ordering shipped eggs in the spring. Hopefully, I won't have too much trouble figuring out how to maintain ideal conditions for hatching. I'm looking forward to setting my first eggs for the very first time, and I'm also a little nervous at the same time.

[​IMG] Hatching Eggs 101 - see day 18 and read that section for help, you should understand that part before you get there!

    Eggs: "BadOh!DearBator" post #5145 100% hatch rate in a nothingbuttolightobator!!!
    Other: My sons and I just made our first incubator. We are learning as we go. Its nice that we have someone from BYC that follows our charts and helps us to understand what we see when we candle and increase our knowledge through our first attempt. I am going to keep on reading and hopefully get caught up at some point so I can participate in conversation. Hatching 101 was super helpful. Read it twice and took notes before we started our hatch. Me and the boys make a Styrofoam incubator that would make most of you cringe. LOL No thermostat. No fan. Lots of holes and duct tape!
