    I finally got the nerve to put my eggs in my homemade bator! Here are just a couple of pictures of my setup. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

    Thanks y'all! The only time I won't be obsessively checking my bator will be during the Saints game on Sunday [​IMG]

    I'm all "Studied Up" on hatching eggs so I just told my girlfriend that I'm officially like the people that "Know just how to raise kids" but have never had a kid!!!(LOL) So the proofs in the puddin...we'll see what I "really" know in 21 days or so!!![​IMG] I've read through the "Dry Hatch" article on the BYC homepage as well as the other article and am going to try to impliment the "egg carton method" at the end!!!???[​IMG] I sound like I know what I'm talkin about ...RIGHT???[​IMG] Ok...Night-Night!

    I have mutts! This is my first hatch so I didn't want to invest a great deal of $$ in my eggs. If all goes well, I want a few silkies and maybe a frizzle or two. I was going to just hatch eggs from my girls, but I went to the local feed store and they had fertile "barnyard" eggs for $2 a dozen. I think I'm making my family crazy...it's all chickens all the time here [​IMG]
