Hi. Im a first timer, and feeling it. I figured "how hard could it be?" How wrong was I! I have a MILLION questions and no one to bounce them off of. Im SO glad I found this group, you all sound amazing! Ill Keep it simple as I can. 1. I LOVE the PVC chicken tractor. Question is: HOW do you keep the Coons and the Fox out? Seems like they can just dig right under or pick it up?? 2.Im incubating now, getting to be a nervous mamma, and want it all perfect. I have the Little Giant incubator. We live in FL, so its pretty warm to start. We put in 42 Rhode Island Red eggs yesterday, and Ive been checking on them practically non stop. The temperature was 108 last night at 3am! Are they OK?? Or did I kill them already? ( Then I guess I overcompensated and when I woke up this morning it was 96. ( It says to keep at 99 1/2 but there isnt a gauge, its a turning metal rod and you have to just guess? I didnt think it would be this hard? Is it too late? Did I lose them? And maybe with all the silly questions chickens arent for me? My daughter is so looking forward to it. I just want a handful to live...we just want eggs and meat for the family. Supposed to go pick up week old Barred Rocks today, but I dont even know if they are supposed to still have a heat lamp? And Im afraid to put them in the tractor, I just know something will get to them. I really appreciate ANY tips!
