    Last month I thought I would try my hand at building my own Incubator. They started hatching last night, I did not think I would be this elated, but it is really fun. They started hatching last night, and they are PIPPING & ZIPPING like crazy, Here have a look see.

    You might want to flip that Brahma over...they shouldn't "nap" on their backs. Sometimes they get turned over and it's not good for them b/c it puts too much pressure on their air sacs and they can't breathe right. Nice incubator!
