Look what I found on Craigslist! http://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/grd/2853185697.html
Ah, it will be mine! (Although apparently they have already sold four! SGC, you and your boyfriend should definitely be going in to business yourselves! I think yours were 4'x4' which would be twice as awesome.)
I also bought a little rabbit cage on sale over the winter to use as a brooder (this one). I only have one EcoGlow, though. I guess if I have too many chicks for the new chick box then I will have to use a light....
isn't there a song about that somewhere.... "four & twenty blackbirds (color of your chicks) baked in a pie"
That looks pretty good, and a great price!! You're lucky to have found it!
We have some 4x2s and a 4x4. He's out of the brooder business right now and is building cold frames. I still need a few more raised beds too, so I think that's next, or right after my hoop houses for the garden.
I say eat the whole pie and on the way to work tomorrow stop and pick up one from the grocery store.
I'm in !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After much foot dragging, I have finally committed (I probably should be committed! ). I will be hatching Blue/Splash Marans, and Wheaton/BW Ameraucanas, along with a few test eggs of my own (olive egger mutts).
Do I win a pie?
You're close enough to come and pick one up... I can make you one this weekend (I have a ton more hubbard squash in the freezer and boyfriend's working the entire weekend and the Monday holiday and I'm home alone!)
Glad you decided to join.
Do any of you keep a hatching journal? Last year I kept track of everything. Date, day eggs are on, how many to go, temp, humidity, basically everything. This year I am doing something different. I have a printed out calendar and I put down when and what I set, when due, and date of lockdown. When I candle, I subtract any that I take out. At the end of the hatch I write down how many of which breeds hatched. Any deaths in the brooder are also accounted for.
Does anyone else do this? I hope so, I would hate to think I am the only looney person out there.
I keep track of the eggs I collect, the seeds that I start but giiiirl I ain't that loony.
