    MY BATOR IS HERE!!!!! YAYYYY! UPS dropped it off earlier and I didn't hear him come by, and I went to walk outside and there was a Hovabator box sitting on the steps! WHOO! I ordered it from Strombergs less than a week ago, I'm really pleased at how fast it actually got here. Model is 1602N, nothing fancy. But it'll work for now, right?


    You should've seen me, like a kid at Christmas. hahaha. I can't wait to put some eggs in there. I'll probably put them in there next week after I go buy a hygrometer [where to get one of these and what brand & about how much? Anyone?].

    When it comes to chickens the darkside is good. Bring a good flashlight. You will need it when you are checking your bater in the middle of the night.

    Make sure you put a bottle of Tylenol by your bator because you will get a back ache from leaning over it everytime you walk by it. [​IMG]
