    I know this is a dumb question but can someone show me a pea comb. Is it the one that looks like a piece of chewed bubblegum? I don't see the three rows that people talk about.

    It's good. Sumi spaces them out. Not fair to only have someone's up for one week when others were on longer.

    X3 on the humidity Red, my broody eggs usually pip day 19 & hatched day 20. And the most important thing you need to do is make sure before day 18 that there isn't any gaps a chick can fall in & be seperated from momma. They will get to cold & die. That happened with my first broody hatch. Lost 2 chicks from that. Make sure you have marbles in you water dish so no chicks fall in & drown. Unfortunately the first couple days you shouldn't mess with mamma & babies. I know, not something you want to hear.

    Yeah they may be making everyone wait for the interview for someone as famous as granny.
