    It has been 3 years since I hatched and don't remember if the bottom part of the Brinsea Eco 20 comes apart? I mean the complete yellow part, does it come apart? I see a crack going all around it, but don't remember and lost my manuals in the move.

    Also, it's very dusty and has been packed away with all of our farm stuff. Would it be safe to wash it with clorox or will that hurt my eggs? What do you wash it with?

    Thank you. The kids and I are so excited! My son (9) remembers us hatching before and having chickens, but my two little ones (4 & 2) don't so you can imagine how excited they are. [​IMG]

    Yes it is fun for people 1-90 years old. Have you decided what breeds you are going to hatch yet?

    ooops. Sorry. What I was trying to type is: For our hatching so far we have a dozen Cuckoo Marans and a dozen Ameraucanas on the way. I am going to get chicks or pullets for the Orpington.
