    I love this @Sally Sunshine
    that's neat. Better then just driving in a long nail and bending it over to make a latch. Oh I'm making a chicken diaper.

    Hey guys. Just saw this question from a different forum....

    How can you separate eggs during lockdown in a small incubator to keep chick types separate.

    My answer is to cut a small piece of. Hardware cloth just big enough to create a divider and secure with zip ties. I'm going to use this idea tomorrow to separate my eggs from my friends eggs. I'll try to take a good picture. [​IMG]
