That will work !! LOL
There ya go. They live in Michigan and it's a bit closer to u and your weather than i am. I wish you warm, healthy, happy chicks and many more to come.
Nice looking hens! I like most any though that have the EE look.
Now that's a sign.
Just make sure the chicks have enough room to hide under the plates when they are cold, and come out from under the plates when they are too hot.
The plates won't change the temperature in your greenhouse, just the area directly under the plate itself.
Just got a mini brinsea (the autoturning one, but not autohumidity) classroom pack for the school. My son is in First grade, so we're going to give little talks to his class weekly while the eggs incubate in class, and the chicks can hang out a couple days until I bring them home (before they get really messy). I plan to set it the same time my cabinet incubator is loaded at home, in case of classroom casualties/to be sure viable eggs make it to hatch.
Can't wait to show them candling and doing weekly weights/charting, etc. I plan each week to show them highlights of what happened inside the shell that week. Looking forward to it!
My other son will be in 1st grade next year, and I just may keep going back if they'll have me. I love teaching those little curious faces!
That sounds fun, and it looks like you are all set to go!
Hey...you took my hen!
Pretty girls. Seriously...love your white hen!!! I have an EE I bought as a chick that looks just like yours with the random black throughout. Only one I have like that. I hope she gives me chicks that look just like her. I don't think I'll be lucky enough to get the blue eggs. Nice that your girls are laying blue!!
I've got more eggs in lockdown and due to hatch tomorrow! I'm excited! More BCM babies lol. The eggs are rocking and rolling though I'm having a tough time getting the humidity up. I have them separated in plastic baskets that I bought at the dollar store. I drilled holes in the bottoms of them for better air flow but my humidity is hovering around 50%. I just threw in a wet sponge so hopefully that helps. First time experimenting with the baskets.
Are the baskets to keep things cleaner?
Good luck with the hatch!
