Well, I'm biting off more than I can chew here. I'd like to know how a person builds an incubater without spending a fortune??????????? Mrs. Spock & I just got 10 hens & 1 rooster. They are all between 1 & 2 years old. We were told that the hens would need a couple weeks before laying eggs again. OOPS!! These are all Production Reds. Well, I can honestly say it has not taken 2 weeks for them to lay eggs. There are only the 2 of us. We don't need 8-10eggs per day. LOL!! Love 'Em, Gotta eat them, but, eventually will have to slow down on them. LOL!! My dilemna: Mrs. Spock wants to try to hatch some of them. Can't afford an incubater!! She says that we can just put in in a towel with a light on it to hatch. After lurking for some time here, I need advise/HELP!! I can't deny my wife anything but, I don't believe her method will work so, please tell us if I'm wrong!! Does anybody have any ideas how we can attempt to hatch some eggs without a "Bater"? I know! I'm cheap but we live on my Social security of under $800.00mo. I can't afford all the fancy toys, but, we are addicted & want to do this correctly. After all, they will be our pets/eggs/food. I love our new hobbie. LOL!!
