OK, been incubating for about 6-8 months and had some good hatches and some bad hatches. Lately they have been really bad. My dear son got me a new Sportsman 1502 for my birthday last month. WOW! Did he get it for me or himself. Doesn't matter we now have 40 of our eggs in the thing (Oct. 31), 2 dozen dominiques + some of our eggs (Nov. 5), SLW due to arrive next week, RIR to arrive next week. SO, for the next few weeks will hopefully be hatching lots of chicks. Hope to take several of you on my journey. Next week will be filled with building a new brooder. I have a brooder that I use after about 2 weeks, an old smoke house, but need something to use with the newborns. What will I do with all these chickens this winter if I have a great hatch? Oh, BTW, I may be moving in a couple of months. I get to candle in the next day or two. HURRAY! God bless and have a great day.
