In the Brooder
- Mar 2, 2014
24 left to hatch, due today, three drying currently, and 9 dried in the ducked. How do I keep them warm when it's a power outage!?
I do have a generator, but the inverter is quiet. I have a 36 volt battery operated golfcart that I use with the inverter---I hook across 2 6 volt batteries-----hours later if the power is not back on----I rehook across 2 more batteries, and I still have 2 more batteries if needed. Works real good, But a Inverter can be used with a boat battery, car battery, etc.Awsome idea! Might have to do that! We plan to invest in better equipment if these first few trials go well, so that will probably be something we get! Thanks
Get you a inverter big enough to run the incubator, brooder or what ever or one big enough to run several----get it hooked up---get a drop cord or two---test it then you can unhook and store it and cords where you can grab it/hook it up if the power goes out. Mine has save me twice in the last month with 200 to 300 eggs in the incubator/hatcher.
