    Hi Everyone! I am fairly new to the site been watching and reading a lot to learn and am now just making my first post :) We started with just 4 chickens when we bought our hobby farm in 2016 and have learned so much already! We now have a decent flock of layers.

    I just wanted to share a few pictures - Check out the awesome incubator that my hubby and I built! We just put out first eggs in today. If all goes well we can set up a second incubator on the bottom. Our stupid Styrofoam incubator broke (we spent $200 on it and only got 17 baby chicks) so we wanted a really good one that would last I hope it works good! we are so proud of ourselves - it has a ball bearing fan that's whisper quiet and we even put in a water tube leading to a sponge in a dish so we can increase humidity without opening the door.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or does this look at great as I think it is?? LOL
