    Sounds like a great day! I was stuck at work, so trying to get things done today... all I got done so far was buying another 10 meaties for the brooder. Mindy is a happy pup again!
    Congrats on the incubator! Can't wait to see pics and hear details!
    Beautiful!!! awesome looking area for your feathered friends.... but only setting up for 8-10 is being pretty brave when you hang around this group!!! I hope you figured in room for your expansions and additions! (I see a duck house near that pond in your future! Maybe a couple of 'guard ducks' can discourage messy geese?
    Dogs are smarter than we give them credit for! Especially the farm/herding/hunting varieties!
    Super set up! and mini fridges are pretty easy to come by cheap!
    We'd be up for it! Don't know that we have a need for an incubator with all you willing hatchers around though! But would still be there in a minute!

    Now I'm thinking on how to turn a wine fridge left behind by a tenant into a hatcher. It already has a beautiful glass door. Like I have time for another project....

    And a scrap plywood hopper type feeder from the leftovers from your Coop. I think it holds around 50#.

    Only if it doesn't work! Otherwise, it needs to be filled with wine!

    It would work well, though.

    I could be talked in to it if I don't have to travel far and it is a weekend I don't work. I'm sure Sally would help, too.

    That should work for almost any insulated box that can have holes drilled in it.

    In that case, I have an old kitchen cupboard sitting in the basement I could line with insulation...

    I'm coming, not sure if I'll be building a bator, but I'm coming! DH is building me a cabinet bator ....still. Seriously, you live 30 min. from me!

    We've picked up 2 different thermostats, and they're wrong. It was only holding, or whatever within 3 degrees. Down to 99 up to 101, shut off, down to 99 turn back on etc. Today DH bought a digital one. I really hope he gets it right this time. He won't read anything, and I don't have a clue![​IMG]
