    Oh Cynth! [​IMG][​IMG] I will hatch mixes too I think. That is wonderful, and with chicks!

    Yes we are going to do a kids face painting contest and if you have any ideas or would like to run one let me know! I just need to make sure the rules are written BYC style! and thats a copy paste from another contest LOL

    your awesome and kind did I mention that lately! I really did miss you, it was fantastic getting to know you on that HAL the other year!

    ditto! and putting extra heat sinks in the bator may help hold heat better if you dont have many in it! jars of water or even ziplocks with water! I am sure others have more ideas too! My styro bator was horrible with adjustments in temp at the dial and flux in room temp, so this may help a bit!

    Penny Hen! welcome! how are you? I am a sucker for a pretty BR! Welcome welcome!!

    do you have a cell phone, or you could make a candler, I have to run to the doc but I am sure someone can help you with a link to a homemade light candler..... I will check back in after my doc to see if you got hooked up!

    DH wants to get one of those radiator looking oil type plug in heaters for the room the bators are in. We are 80s during the day and 40s at night.....the heat lamp from the brooder keeps it pretty warm. Anything I should be aware of on this? [​IMG]

    My hubby would kill me if I worked somewhere that sold them, lol. We'd have WAY too many in NO time.

    You need a REALLY bright light that produces little to no heat.... cut an oblong hole in a box... have the light inside the box.... set the egg on the oblong hole... It helps to be in the dark when doing this.... and you may have to line the box with aluminum foil, to intensify the light....

    For hand candling, Sally bought a ridiculously bright flashlight some time back on Amazon... something like 5,000 lumens brightness... I think it worked on chocolate Easter eggs, it was so bright....
