    Hey y'all new member just introducing myself I am from a very small town about 50 miles in land from Charleston, SC. I received my first chickens May of this year. Have enjoyed them very much. I started with 30, am down to 25 I think. A few got out of the coop and the neighborhood dogs had a fest. I had not thought about hatching eggs until one of my ladies went broody on me outside the coop. Had no clue she went broody until the chicks hatched. Unfortunately the dogs got her and the babies before I could move them. So now I am working on my first incubator, and having trouble with the auto turner. I have everything set up and running the test. I have a rotisserie but I can't figure out how to make the gear to make the rotation of up and down instead of all the around. Any suggestions
