Sounds like fun I'm in
Was sick for a couple days and ended up 1000 posts behind... hope I didn't miss anything important, cuz there's no way I'm gonna try to catch up...
Btw, you *might* wanna double check the set date for Calls... I don't think any set on April 29th will hatch in time for Easter...
I'm in! Looking forward to Easter peeps! :
Glad you are feeling better I couldn't catch up either LOL but I think I almost understand most of what is going on for the most part. I know I am kind of still a newbie But I almost feel like I am getting to know some of the peeps
Thanks, it was a rough couple of days, lol... HAL's are a great way to meet lots of different people here, and this one has tons of great peeps... I was in last years and a couple others... always people who can help, give advice and just chat and have fun...
My week old chicks. I hadn't expected so much feathering in just a week.
I am sending a couple pictures to get feedback. @sallysunshine will remember the MacGyverbator a bit. I changed the angle for turning because I am getting shipped eggs and didn't want the rolling. The bottom drops down for lockdown. The left side holds the "hen" (light/heat which plugs in to a thermostat, fan, water underneath grate for humidity). The right side is the "nest". Eggs fit in air cell up and a timer turns them or I can switch the turner on and off. The microwave turner is great but made me rethink the process. I had to consider how to turn eggs without damaging sensitive air cells or chalaza. I have insulated/foam that wraps the entire incubator. During test runs the bator holds temp great. The aquarium is great at holding humidity so I don't need much water at all. Everything can be disinfected. For lockdown I'll drop the floor to level position, remover the turner, cover it with shelf liner, and lay the eggs on their sides. The top is a two piece insulated panel so I can open hen or nest without losing too much heat or humidity.
