    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]




    BYC has plenty of Trends for incubating [​IMG]

    I have been using this foam incubator for 20 years now and I took this photo two days ago [​IMG]

    Yep same chick, the hard part is the placement of your incubator so no cold winds get to it and the outside temp is kept constant [​IMG]

    The real fun is when you finally get it correct [​IMG]

    I works netter if the incubator is full of eggs [​IMG]

    Many of us have lost our mind, don't feel badly, we probably would never notice. Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to visit the incubation threads. Just put that in the search box and it should pop up.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - hope it wasn't BYC that caused you to lose your mind! As DD says, many of us have lost our minds, and some never even had one to begin with! [​IMG]

    All the best
