    Howdy everyone!

    I've been lurking for about a month and finally registered tonight. I really
    love the website and everyone seems to be very helpful.

    I am currently foraging for all the componets to build my first 'bator.

    My goal is to try and use "pre-used" building materials. I know I
    will have to buy items like a hygrometer (already ordered) and
    my thermometer with probe (and water wiggler =P ) but everything
    else I want to re-use existing materials.

    I have a common sized plastic cooler that was given to me by a co-worker.

    I salvaged a large piece of tempered glass from a old printer/scanner we were scrapping at work. My co-worker had found this printer on the side of the road two years ago, after a little TLC we used it until recently it finally gave up the ghost. [​IMG]

    I was given a light kit from another guy I work with.

    Currently I am making out a list of items I need the wife to track
    down tomorrow. She has already found a local man that is willing to sell
    us fertilized eggs.

    I have a fairly large front yard and plan on having one or maybe two
    chicken tractors going as well as a permanent coop.

    Im sure I will have many questions in the future but for now I need
    to go into sponge mode and read as many threads as I can to soak
    up information and knowledge.

    Thanks for having such a great place for people to share their experience!

    Sincerely, Tim in TN aka USMC_LB
