    I'll be needing some eggs in a week or so...Let me know what you guys might have available soon....

    I just ordered my incukit got everything wired up and ready !!!

    Little Giant egg turners fit like a charm cut a nice 1" 1/2 hole to feed the cords out

    I used a short piece of drain pipe generally found under the kitchen sink to make a nice grommet to protect the wires

    The plug on the left is wired up to a switch these plugs are for the egg turners and the plug on the right will power the incukit

    The homemade switch box so I can turn the egg turners off when needed

    I should be able to come up with something. Our flat sheets are 4' x 10' so two sheets cut in half oughtta do it. Let me see what I've got laying around.

    Hi all! Was wondering if everyone's girls have stopped laying in this heat? Mine have, I'm down to one or two eggs a day from my 5 hens. Usually get no less than 4.

    Haven't lost any hens though, so thankful for that!!!
