3 weeks ago I started incubating 5 eggs in a barely made incubator, by barely I mean no thermometer ,no hygrometer and no funny litttle gadgets you find on normal incubators. I was bored (you all know how crazy teenagers get when they are bored ) so I made a little incubator out of a wooden box, a 60 watt light bulb and a small container of water. I placed 5 eggs from our small flock of chickens.I turned them 3 times a day. I compared the temp through feeling the heat of the eggs under a broody in our flock. Suprisingly a chick hatched today!!! To tell you all the truth I didnt really think a chick could hatch. It looks good and no deffects on the little guy.Its wet at the moment I will try to post pics as soon as its dry and awake. Who knew it could happen and my mom is excited about the hatchling and a little confused as well. I think it was just luck, what do you all think?
