    Does anyone have any experience with brooders from Pippin's Roost Exotics and/or the rcon mini incubator? I have a few questions about them that I cannot find the answers too anywhere. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I have some eggs due to hatch in 2 and a half days and desperately need to prepare their brooder.

    Grab a plastic tote, attach a heat lamp from feed store (red bulb to prevent pecking each other) some pine shavings, voila! Brooder:). All that stuff can be obtained locally usually and if you are in a hurry and desperate it works just fine.
