    These are the incubators that were put in use...
    They both refused to break the broody cycle and I was lucky enough to have set aside half dozen for them.
    Candled on day eight and saw the eyeball in one egg. So far its looking good to go! These girls are new to this process and have found an egg outside their wings on a couple of occasions. Wish me luck!
    BTW, they're under the table in my craft room...[​IMG]

    Great photo, and I agree with the others, you can't go wrong with the brand of incubator shown.

    LOL,
    Yes, someone upstairs knows the perfect way to do it!

    Chick-0-lot, the white one, will hatch hers out on the 8th of Feb. BooBerry, the gray/blue silkie, will hatch out two on the 12th.

    All eggs are from BooBerry. She went broody while I was collecting eggs from her. Four of her eggs are under Chick-0-let and the rest (2) under her.

    Now I'm getting no eggs from them at all! Oh well... this will be their first time at raising chicks, so will see how it turns out.

    Since I'm home most all the time, its no bother to clean up after they get up and stretch . [​IMG][​IMG]

    DH doesn't seem to mind.
