    Morning mike! Thanks for asking. We're starting to wean the boys. The black doeling has soft poop, not sure if it's from change in feed or overeating, or something worse. She's 3mos and weaned already.

    Mornin! :hugs

    Good thing I'm doing a long test run for this set of eggs... Cardboard (did I show it to you?) On the thermo bottom keeps getting caught on the auto turner, and I'm having to make fiddly adjustments so it stays put no matter what rotation it is at!

    Slowly Losing it......
    Won't the cardboard affect your humidity?

    I used cardboard before, and it didn't do anything.... If it gets wonky I figure it was free, and no harm done, I'll just pull it. :D

    View from egg turner level- looks more like a factory than an incubator from this level. :p
