    The incubator I just built

    Strader, Very nice job on the incubator. But you should know, a while back someone posted a warning about rough service bulbs. They are coated with Teflon and it gases off fumes that are toxic to chickens.

    Wisconsinites- Heat the coop or not?!

    No you don't need to heat your coop. What I use for water, is a metal base heater purchased at Fleet Farm. Each of my coops has one. In past years I would replace the frozen water a couple times a day. Glad I don't have that anymore.

    Aussiegal318, You don't need heat in your coop, unless you have young chicks. The only heat I use is for water.

    does anyone use paper shred dings in their coop?

    I use wood shavings, but add shredded paper because I've got it. Shredded paper alone would be very messy.

    How late is 'too late' to let a hen go broody?

    Take the eggs, this is way to late unless you were in the South or have a fully heated coop.

    Thinking about winter (ugh!) and water heaters....

    The most trouble free I've used, is a metal base heater. They have a factory set thermostat only turns on when needed. They cost around $40 dollars but last for years. Here in Minnesota we have alot -0 temps and with these I don't worry.
