    Well as you know, I killed all my eggs.. But I built a new incubator. Just surviving one day at a time. Finding moments to celebrate to get out of my own head. Lol

    Welcome! I am on my first hatch, due 4/1. Best of luck. I can't wait to hear about your hatching adventure and incubator mod successes! <I am a positive person> Is your incubator an "Oldie but a Goldie?" I searched for an older something rather model... Congrats again and welcome to Living The Dream.

    Thank you! Yes, we got out incubator from my in-laws; it's from the 1950's and apparently pretty hard to find. It isn't as fancy and convenient as a Brinsea but I'll take it. :)
    What are you hatching?
    I see that you have beehives in the background- my husband started keeping bees a few years ago. I have yet to don a veil and inspect the hives with him but I'd like to at some point. The chickens are more of my thing at this point in time!

    There is nothing quite like your first hatch.
