    LOL I didn't count them...about 18 turkey though I suspect only 5 or 6 are viable. About a dozen chicken, one unknown Polish plus Ameraucana and other assorted purebreds. I've gotten much better at waiting a week before adding the chicken eggs so I don't have to deal with a staggered hatch.

    I really like snakes. At least non-poisonous ones. Thanks for sharing the pics. I had a guy ask if I'd hatch chicks as feeders. I just said no...but really not much of a difference between baby mice, baby rats, and baby chickens or quail besides the amount of fuzz.

    Would anyone be interested in a reverse-engineering of a GQF incubator?

    There is nothing special about this thing, and I already realized that I have to do things differently with tilting trays over tilting cups in the LG turner. The egg trays that came with it are not all snug fit and the first rotation sent the turkey eggs sliding to the other side of the tray.

    The placement of the thermostat right next to the heating element makes sense. But placement of the thermometer next to that makes no sense as the water pan shelf, where the heating element and thermostat and thermometer are, is 3F warmer than the trays.

    Your enclosures look great! I hope the mites clear up. I'm not the reptile buff in the family but I'm learning to appreciate them!
    Here's the dragon and the king snake but the snake was hiding!

    I had a neighbor once that had a huge HUGE iguana. I was always scared of that thing. But I did like to sit and watch it, and watch her handle it. Lovely, interesting creature. Never had any desire to have one myself though.
