    I recently started incubating a batch of eggs and decided to use Styrofoam 8 egg carton as my way to hold water for humidity.It really works well for fine tuning humidity .I just add water to one egg holder in carton at a time till humidity is just right.5 spots in carton puts my incubator at 50% leaving me leaving me with 3 empty spots for raising humidity during last 3 days.I'm on day 13 and only had to add water once.I highly recommend trying this method if you have space in incubator to fit Styrofoam egg carton.

    I'm only incubating 5 eggs.My niece has been asking me for a couple chicks for months but I told her she had to have coop before I would hatch any chicks for her.
    A few weeks ago I happened to drive behind a Petco and there was chicken coop in dumpster. It was brand new display model that had few broken and missing parts.I took it home did some repairs and it's good as new.I'm going to surprise her as soon as chicks hatch. 0419181653.jpg
