    Mason sand. It's just like playground sand. There are other kinds and I would not recommend some of the others just because there are different sized pebbles and some can be sharp, and the wicked lil chickens would end up getting one caught goofy and have a whole line of issues. Did not know that chickens are attracted to and attempt to eat styrofoam. Just my own lil side note.

    Concrete sand may work better if it is going to get wet and be outside. Inside definitely use mason sand. Concrete sand outside. The extra lil bits in it will allow airspace and it won't cake up as bad and for a crust.

    Mine is afraid of it, even though he bought it for me, lol. It's the kids I have to wrestle it off of. Thank goodness for the password option!
    I was not sure I was going to like the new format, but it only took a few minutes until I decided it worked smoother!

    Pentamom, I like these directions for lockdown...



    It's time to...LOCKDOWN!

    This means to take out the turners, or for some, move the eggs to the hatcher. For many, it simply means to top off the water reservoirs and then STOP OPENING THE LID!

    I know you want to know what's going on in there, but see that big glass space on your incubator, that's a window. That is where your nose goes. Just press it right up against that glass and look all you want. When you're tempted to open the lid, go sit on your hands.
