    I love my Brower Top Hatch. I did the research and called around for recommendations from other breeders. For ME it was the best choice.

    Here is a pic of the excitement last night. The neighbor's kids where there to share the fun!!!!


    This is what the kids were looking at.....


    And this is the "nursery", don't you love a kids perspective on a brooder box? Complete with stuffed animals, a doll and a picture of a bird taped to the wall.


    We are still peeping this morning. We are hatching Seramas from my girls, Barred Rock from Mikeeeeee, and Black Rosecomb from Msbear!! This stuff is really hard to leave alone, and I'm as bad as the kids.

    I finally join the 'bator/hatching club!

    Oh Mike! RJ is the largest....with the spot on its head and the baby Serama under it's wing! I'm betting its a boy!! All four of your Barred Rocks have hatched now. Mark is sooo proud of them!
