    [​IMG] Welcome to the addiction. Pretty funny that we are raiding children's toy shelves for water wigglers to hatch chicks, huh. [​IMG]

    So, where are the pics of this upgraded bator?? I'd love to see it!!

    You know, the company that makes the water wiggler's for Walmart probably thinks that their toys are getting more and more popular with the kids!!! Little to they know. . .

    1. You put it over the wire bottom, when turning the eggs they dont roll all over the wire.
    2. Chicks have a comfy place to hatch on instead of hard wire.

    Thanks so much. I'm planning to incubate for the 1st time in February and didn't know about the shelf liner. I'll be sure to get some.
