    Hey Oz I thought i had subscribed to this thread back when I read it before the San Diego meetup.... Duh.... Subscribed last night. So did you build your Cabinet bator?

    Also when you get your shirts I want to buy one.... of them plus sized ones.... LOL.

    the incubator will be finished this weekend. I will run it for a week to monitor temps before unscrewing it and packing it in a box.

    When I am in the Philippines I will see about the screen printing as it is cheaper there. I will have to bring our sizea in shirts from here though.

    I built a basic android chicken math app but I need help to make it more fun. I asked a techie to see what he can do.

    The website is a work in progress. When I get a few hours free (as if) I will work on it. I have some school assignments I have to concentrate on. It may be a good thing to do on the plane. I have 16 hours to amuse myself between LAX and MNL.

    The count down is on. Only 12 more Disneyland fireworks shows from my bedroom window before I head of on the easter egg run.

    Somehow I managed to sell four of my silkie roosters for $8 a piece. So while it was hard it is possible. Wish your friend good luck!

    if they want to hand over cash take it :)
    i know hens & babies sell well but roos are tough
    we ended up with 3 youngster silkie roos
    we solved that problem by sending them on their way
    you may not want to know their new vocation Deb [​IMG]

    most silkie roos become chicken stock. people get turned off to eat them even because of the bones being black. its a tough life if you are not the alpha roo.
