I am a new peep to hatching eggs(I have attempted once, and the egg I am trying to hatch is on day 21 with no pips but it's expected to be delayed) I made a homemade bator which works OK, but I really want to make a better one with a cooler. I have most everything i need. But my mom says the light bill is just getting too high when i run the bator I am using now. And my dad says he doesn't want any more chickens right now. But this hatching thing is really addicting and I haven't had a chance to really make a good bator to use. I REALLY want to hatch out a little chicky of my own, but parents won't let me. What do I do? It seems like I am the only one interested in raising chickens in my family!
