I have some new babies ... looking forward to good advice from this forum.
First piece of advise, get them off the newspaper. Paper towels will work for now but newspaper is slippery for them and can cause spraddle leg.
And welcome. What breeds are they? They are cute.
oh wow thanks that is what i read was to use newspaper, ok .. thanks
2 rir and 2 buff orr..forgot what the other 2 were, I picked them up at TSC today they are quiet as it 11 pm here now, so I guess all is ok so far.
gonna keep reading this post, i will worry a little tomorrow while i go to work.
almost wish i had a nanny cam for them
Nice picks! And I know the feeling about the nanny cam! I was actually speculating about getting another camera for my fancy smancy baby monitor to watch my chicks. Then I saw the price tag and figured I could just check on them a lot.
I just had my first incubated chick hatch an hour ago! Not sure if any of the others will hatch, but I am SO HAPPY! This has made my week!
Any more hatch?
One more! He/she has some deformed toes (they're all curved), but I read that I may be able to splint and fix them, so I apparently have some shopping and work to do. Splinting will have to wait until he can come out of the incubator though. I also had another external pip about 4 hours ago, but nothing else. Nobody else is making any sound or anything, but for my first attempt I'm calling this a success! I still haven't slept today, but I did the first night. So glad I have nothing to do today HA!
I would love to have an IP webcam, but the $$ prevent.
Check the RaspberryPi. $25 SOC computer, soon to have a $25 camera add-on. Will need a USB wi-fi dongle
I settled for a Walmart indoor-outdoor thermometer with the outdoor unit placed in the center of the light circle.
I check it all day long from my easy chair. Too hot? Run out and open the top a bit. The garage has been chilly - cools quickly.
