    I don't have much faith that it will. It was in the 20s the other night and the chicks are only partially feathered.


    [​IMG] Thanks y'all. I'm tired and little upset, but otherwise ok.

    Ok so after a few hours she wouldn't go back to the nest so i confiscated the rest of the eggs. How NASTY ! There were 4 way down under everything else and i could tell by the smell it wasn't gonna be good. Those 4 i threw toward the field. Of course one of the bad ones fell at my feet and broke [​IMG] Brought the rest in and candled, one more was smelling nasty, had about 4 clear, so i have 2 that look promising and 2 i'm just not sure about. That makes 4 ???? The problem is, with them all having set on top of the nasty ones they all have an odor. SO ! I put ? on a couple that i will candle again tomorrow and put them way to one side of my bator, away from the ones i have in there. The others i will candle and if any movement i will keep. So [​IMG] hoping nothing explodes on me.

  10. I dont own a brooder plate

    I hang a 40-60 watt incandescent VERY low, with a thermo under it.


    One thing I noticed.

    Coupla days ago I put the lid on the brooder, but cracked enough for airflow.

    They have been SO QUIET.

    Not a peep.

    I reckon this is what folks talk about the chicks being quieter with brooder plates, cept I got the same effect for cheaper.

    As far as the sound level goes.
