    made the frame from plans on YouTube. Look for the 19 min video.

    For the motor mount, my dad used aluminum pieces but the YouTube guy shoes how to make a wooden mount

    Hmh. Maybe I should candle again. Then again, I need to wait awhile. I never saw much in my chicken eggs either. I could have a dull light.

    Woo hoo!!

    THIS MINI MAGLITE ROCKS!
    I havent had any BCM's to try yet but RIR and Sexlinks I have NO problem with
    Around$20 and the size is PERFECT for candling
    Comes in handy on the farm instead of dragging around my 4D cell fullsize

    That egg was shipped to you?? I've never seen a shipped egg so muddy! I'm sorry you received it like that. Wash it, it should be fine. :hugs

    Oh, I love tea!!

    It's getting so close! I'm getting excited!! Tomorrow I will set up my incubator and get it all prepped and running. :fl my eggs are fertile :fl

    Question, for the number of eggs contest, is it to guess how many eggs will be set by everyone for this HAL?
