    Someone needs to come up with a hatching unit with a lighted, see-thru bottom so we can candle the eggs while waiting for them to pip without having to open the top. Or maybe just a unit with a see-thru bottom and legs so that we can shine normal lights into the eggs.

    Moving into Day 20 with the BRs and I'm not the least bit anxious to see how they're doing. Not at all........ [​IMG]

    Quote:Unfortunately that only works on the 3 egg unit. I need something at least as big as a hova bator........

    someone needs to invent a flashlight that has a light turn pink or something if an egg is developing.. LOL like a prego test but the flashlight has a way to tell if the egg is good [​IMG]

    You know, along the same line- if "geneticist" could determine a way to increase the chances of female offspring, hatcheries could make/save a bundle! They have figured out the probability of male/female offsrping by conditions the sperm/ovulation in humans. It would be great if the same type of thing could be figured out in chickens/goats/livestock. Like timing of mating (which is how it works in humans) or conditions, environment, etc.

    Im sure they have nothing better to do with their time. [​IMG] [​IMG]
