DID I MENTION I LOVE THIS CABINET COOLER AND MY REG COOLERBATORS
WELL I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is only HALF of them!!
Moved some chicks to the brooder, ALL are BS FAVS so far and one CCL male it
They were filling up the coolerbator and I think we have about 15 more or so to go!
so they can breath now ha ha ha
all eggs have pipped or hatch except three, one brahma and two CCL are not pipped : (
I cannot complain, thats alot of chicks!
and of course pit stop at the counter top! Photo shoot!
Sally they are so cute!
The word "Awesome" is so overused these days that it has lost almost all it's meaning...
But yes, in this case the word "AWESOME" fully applied to this expedition in all its meanings and nuances.
It was a profound experience with moments which human words cannot even hope to touch.
Sure, we all have fleeting amazing moments,
but I have never felt consistantly alive, before or since, like i did during those 10 days...
I dont think I will ever be the same after that... Ever!
and that journey was over 5 years ago...
Yes... it was Awesome...
Now back to the chickens!
WOW great build! I love it!
You mentioned that the trays didn't fit all your eggs, some too large and some too small. How much of a problem has that been and did you consider getting different tray sizes for the next incubator?
I just ordered 6 of those exact trays and some of the eggs I am setting are quite large (over 70 grams). I'm wondering if I'll need to keep one of my older trays in the incubator to handle the really large eggs.
Thanks! they are sweet, now to choose two out of that lot will be tough but the rest have to go!
I am too cheap to purchase more right now, with my first order of those white trays for $22. there were a total of 7 as they added a free one, so I have enough for another bator. I should have chosen the name Cheap Sal instead of Sally Sunshine I will need to get a small one for serama, those are a pain to turn but chad brought the rest of the turner trays so I have a mix, maybe I will put a turner in a regular coolerbator for them. Its my CCL eggs that leave me a problem, they are the largest and they lonw and are wide enough that really cant force them into those little tabs in the egg tray, I have already punctured a ccl and had to toss it trying to do this. but it seems to be the two older hens eggs, so I am assuming the rest will catch up in due time, for now I keep them in the middle if the tray and keep other big eggs around them so they dont fall out on turning.
I will make the alum holders sooner or later, it would be easier to candle and such. But I achieved what I needed to for the time being, I am getting orders out!
Yeah. I know what you mean.
I just installed the "Little Giant" thermostat by drilling a hole for the knob and for the red light and 3 more for each wire lead. I then had to tape it because the screws were too short for the cooler wall.
Here are the 3 wire leads which I hooked up.
Black to incoming black
Red to out going black
White to white
Next I used a screw driver to begin adjusting the heat.
Look at the cool red light! It's working!
Things are heating up!
And the light shuts off at 99.5+
And then turns on at 99.5-
