I should have known.
I wish they weren't so tough to hatch, or I'd be placing an order for eggs now.
Any chance you can wrap the cage in hardware cloth?
The bottom has a spot fer a chit tray
so the bottom isnt the bottom , if that makes sense
Yer thinking they could reach in and not crawl in right>?
Yes, it makes sense, I have two dog crates with a plastic tray on the bottom that slides out. the space at the bottom makes it easy for chicks to escape mine unless I'm really careful how I wrap mine with plastic netting.
Just wondering if your cage could be made secure enough so that mice or rats couldn't squeeze through, but the door could still be used. Maybe if it was wrapped separately?
They're tough, but doable... I would definitely wait til you get some other hatching experience first, then try... and they take tons of patience and knowing when and how much to help... very stressful and hands on...
Except the bottom, it looks like the bars are pretty narrow...
It looks better than othe kennels I've seen...
possibly, thanks fer the helps
OK NOW BACK TO BUBBLES HATCHING EXPERIENCE
Oh, and if the bodies were all gone, I doubt a broody that size coulda ate what, 5 or 6 chicks?? Ugh, flockin rats... I hate rats... got huge ones here... but our neighbors cat comes over and catches them and leaves them on their front porch, lol...
I don't have anything to say except that temperatures are still stable, and that gets a mite boring after a while. Carry on.
