    i think the first one is an EE or amauricana (however it's spelt) and the hello one was hatched from a trader noes eggs so i think it is white leghorn hybrid but i have no idea what the black one is, i think it was laid from a welsummer but i don't know the rooster.
    Anyone have corrections or ideas?

    How long does it take to stabilize the tempiture in one of these? I started mine up last night and I keep swinging 2 degrees too high and 2 dregrees too low.

    swinging because you are tweaking the thermostat or just cycling?

    it doesn't help that the dial on that crappy thermostat is so sensitive...
