    Well the end is almost here. My eggs come out of the turner tonight. I am noticing a change in the bator the last couple days. I have had to turn the heat down just a touch and have had to ad water each day for the last couple days. Will fill up both water troughs in the hovabator tonight. Also will do our final candling and toss out the clears. My 16 year old wants to use them as targets for his bb gun!!

    I had to go check this morning before going to work to make sure no one was being an early bird. Still looked all peacefull in there.

    Stay tuned!! [​IMG]

    I just had 10 out of 14 hatch in my home made bator and these were shipped eggs from CA to NH so good luck on your hatch.

    The wild thing is as I was putting the pine chips in the brand new coop last night I was thinking to myself " there is that old playhouse out in the woods that would make a halfway decent coop"

    Am I addicted now???
