    Day 21 is tomorrow and I have to leave in a couple hours! [​IMG] The gal that is baby sitting for me knows if she needs help to post on here to get it. I split the hatch into 2 bactors and told her to only open the one if there is just to many chicks running around in it. I have a brooder all set up but hopefully no one pips ubtil I get back. [​IMG] The other has only 12 eggs in it and they should be fine in there until I get back..
    Wish me luck!

    I saw a picture of an incubator that works when you plug it into the cigarette lighter of your car. I just couldn't figure out how you keep the car ride from breaking the eggs.

    The idea seemed pretty silly to me, but yes I can see how a teacher might want that... I guess...

    Everything is going to be fine, I can feel it. [​IMG] And when you get back you will probably have some little chickies jumping all around happily. Cause you know that "babies" come when they are least expected too. Tehe
