    It was already explained no need to be redundant.

    Love the setup SC. Hoping to move in the spring and when I do I'm going to make a permanent setup something like yours. I'm excited to see Don's setup.

    And it looks like the SLW is a bantam version.

    Welcome to the thread! [​IMG]

    I would turn the eggs after at least 4 days. Day 4-7 are the most important turning days. I wrote a whole post about it citing a scientific study -PDF, but I can't find it right now.

    Thanks I'm out of the purple ring and back to the blue corner. Does anyone use the Brinsea brooder - if you do, do you cover it? I like it because my chicks are calmer at night without a light the light on 24/7. I have shavings and paper towel down on the floor, but they love to go on top of the brooder and it has to be slippery.

    Love your post. I, also enjoy reading and doing research. Especially for hatching. Only thing I can add, is that I don't go that long without turning shipped eggs. I go 5-7 days. Usually candle on day 5 to see if air cells stabilized. But like SC said, if that is working for you then by all means keep with it! Good luck on the hatch! :welcome

    The last one is definitely a pullet. Not sure about the others.
