    In practice for looks like I may be building this myself, I decided yesterday to "man" up and do something creative! I have a cage set up for my babies to go to when they feather out, but it has no outside run to it. Well, it HAD no outside run. I did it!!! All by myself! Its not very pretty, but its functional! Lol I can do this! Now, just being patient until I can get the cooler! Grrr. I also had my bf's dad rip me a 2x6 yesterday, so now I have some 2x3!

    no hot or cold spots? your good, let us know how the eggs faired!

    What is your practice for shipped eggs or are these local? sorry if you said, I cant remember

    in the Hatching 101 is a shipped eggs section.

    Also what are your plans for humidity?

    Cant wait to see you hatch some!

    I brought my 1st batch of "random chicken eggs" home from the Sumner Byrd Farm.

    They are now SET.
    Day1

    They are mostly random bantams.
    3 are Japanese bantams.
    A few top hats and jersey giants.

    And so the training begins.
