    Just hatched out my first bitties. I put in 22 eggs and got 18 chicks. Feel pretty good about it.

    I like your set-up except for how hot that hay looks under the light----have you checked the temp there? We don't want to burn nothing down. Good Luck!

    Yeah that's my only concern. I've got a heating pad setup I use but figured they might need the heat lamp for a couple of days at at least.
