    [​IMG] Roxanne... I thought you were done for the year?!? Your house must look like mine with all the brooders everywhere. I have 80 eggs in the bator for the NYD hatchalong and I SWEAR this is it until my own start laying.

    I am just hoping I am doing everything right. I have never built one before. I have always for years had others hatch for me and was waiting to have the money to buy one. I have always built things from unwanted items and it just hit me,,,, DUH,,, make one!!! ITs been a slow process but I am finally here lol

    I built my first one back in July and it worked so well that I built another for a hatcher. I ended up getting a Sportsman and using the coolerbators exclusively for hatching. I watched this guys videos on Youtube and modeled mine after them. I have to say that they keep temp and humidity almost perfectly and I never had to worry about the dramatic swings I see other people having with the Hovabators and LG's.
