    hello guys,
    this is my very first post so go easy on me. well i recently bought 11 WHITE SILKIE BANTAM CHICKEN eggs. i ordered them Wednesday and i received them Saturday morning.
    i popped them in my home made Styrofoam incubator. i have all the temperatures and humidity rite. i dont have a turner so i have to turn them every 8 hours. well here are some of the pics i took before and after i put the eggs in.
    and also im hoping for hens =[ cause i cant keep roosters...


    heres my home made Styrofoam incubator. 23 wtt dimmable bulb.
