    Woo Hoo!!! for the first time since ... I don't even know when, my house is chick free!

    Ok so, there are 2 dozen Ameracauna eggs in the 'bator but the weather is only going to get warmer so they won't have to be in the house nearly as long!

    And then I'm done hatching for a while. I mean it!

    Apparently I learn the same way you do![​IMG]
    Definitely scour Craigslist. Sometimes there are awesome deals on there.
    It's starting with 2 chickens that miraculously double and quadruple etc. etc. before you know what hit you, you have 50 chickens 3 coops, grow out pens, and incubators full of eggs (this has been my last year to a T).

    Absolutely. They need to be brooded in either the bedroom or living room!
    Have you ever had problems with moths? I just had to dump my two mealworm tubs because meal moths started breeding in the tub. [​IMG] They are kept in a spare bedroom, so I didn't want them getting down into the kitchen pantry.

    Is that an ok one? Does anyone have experience with it? I mean, I don't have the luxury of being a big spender, but don't want something that will fall apart in 6 months.

    That one is nice from TSC but I would just buy the house part and throw some wood together with some chicken wire for a much larger run and it won't cost u the extra $100.

    TSC sells just a house part? That sounds like it would work really well! I wanted to give them more room to run around anyway. Do you know if it has nesting boxes in it?

    Yea, it has a section in the back that opens up (90% sure) to grab the eggs straight from the back. They are separate units and they are $100 each. Where are u located?
