    Ooh good idea! I never thought of using a ziplock bag for suspect eggs! I'm always afraid one is going to explode all over me, so I take them outside and chunk them in a bucket [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm happy you have a plan. I hope it works! This is my first winter with chickens and I think my plan will work. I'm heating the line of nipple waterers with heat tape and I'll use an aquarium heater if needed. I still need to improve the bracing for the pipe. Not ready yet, so the winter better hold off for a couple months.

    [​IMG]very good therapy, now hands off and keep reading on the process of hatching! lol [​IMG] and NOT touching! this explains A LOT of what is going on in there! and it takes time, A LOT OF TIME!!! and hatch time is so testing a person!!! I get so antsy, and I have to zip my mouth on BYC because I can tell when people intervene, I see these posts and they say, I didnt touch it, I found it this way, [​IMG], its so obvious and so unfortunate for the chicks! They worry when they see the pip they think after a few hours, OMG OMG OMG its not doing anything... then they start to pick, just a little they think, then a bit more and then.... oh man!!!! sometimes it DOES take a day after it pips!! see the video I posted in the article I am going to post here: so READ READ READ!!

    Hands off! [​IMG]

    You know what..? As old as I am, I am actually getting used to seeing the color in kids hair. There are some that are actually done quite tastefully. Like the last photo..not bad. What they don't realize, is when it comes time to change it..not so easy..they usually have to cut it off. So, if she has long hair, it will be like that for a while, unless she dies it black black!! lol...
