    So I made my D.I.Y incubator! Test ran it a few days...I have 7 eggs so far from 3 different chickens:

    1 from a Bramha

    4 from a Old English Game/Speckled Sebright/?? bantam mix

    2 from a mystery large bantam..

    I should get 2 or 3 eggs tommorow then there going in!!!

    I am gonna run it tonight to get the temp up and make sure it's correct..then the hard waiting begins!! Ughh...I have to cut a few more airholes though!

    So any tips for me??

    Yup....I betcha the rooster has something to do with it:

    Rooster to hens:Don't lay anymore eggs! She could get a new rooster-you deon't want a new rooster!

    Hens to rooster: We don't?

    Rooster to hens: No!

    Hens to Rooster: Oh, okay.


    And normally they have laid at least 2 eggs my 9:30-10:30...not todaY!
