    Quote:This is my first late hatch, normally incubators go off on September 1st !
    NOt sure how I am going to manage the winter though, I am going to order two electric hens for both brooders, but we have such a small house. Maybe they can go in the caravan ? My shed coop is 6x8 and the brooder will fit fine but its not insulated.
    Luckily I have 24 Rir x Sussex, and 12 legbars that are auto sexing, so numbers will drop, and 12 rir purebreed.
    Guess ill have to cross that bridge when it comes !
    What and how many have you set ?
