    Went to the chicken auction tonight.
    Guy was selling out everything.
    I got his Hovabator ( older model but seems to work good) for 15 bucks.

    Plugged in right now and coming up to temp.

    Congrats Mikeeee. I got me a meat thermometer from WallMart and use it in the top of mine and the point reaches the top of the eggs. I can see the temp from the outside that way.

    A meat thermometer is a fantastic idea!
    I have one.........I will try it.

    If I were not going to the funeral tomorrow, I would come up and see your showgirls!

    My Araucana bantam is not far off from laying.
    But my RIRs are only 3 weeks old. It will be quite some time before they are dropping eggs.

    I can get some mutt eggs from my neighbor. I think thats what I'm gonna try 1st.
