    Great! What breed are they. I haven't hatched chicks of my own in years and can't wait to start again. I am in the process of converting an old bakery proofer into a bator. Will post some pics when it is done.

    Yes my wife runs a gas station and they have a kitchen well they had it sitting out back and I asked if I could have it and she gave me this puzzled look. I told her what I wanted it for and she just gave me the look! It is about 6 ft tall and who knows how many eggs I could actually fit in it! I think her biggest concern is I am going to keep it full all the time! I actually got me inspiration from every one on here! Thanks to all the creative folks out there who have shared their plans and hopefully I can share mine with you all.

    Quote:Lol, well my big one is about 18 inches tall and that fits 160 chicken eggs so depending on width and depth 6 foot could be 800 or more that's a lot of eggs [​IMG]
    Good luck with it looking forward to seeing your creation [​IMG] I'd try and make one of my own but I think the DH would divorce me [​IMG]
