    [​IMG] My homemade bator works well!
    I have 19 barnyard mixed eggs due today and I woke up to 1 chick and 12 pips, so it will be an eggciting day for sure!! I will post pictures later as this old lady needs much more coffee to work the camera lol

    I have one egg that the cat knocked out of my hand when candling day 10, it put a pretty good dent in the air sack end of the eggs, I put candle wax on it and wished it good luck, well it is one of the piped eggs, it already has the name DH gave it, Humpty Dumpty lol he says that no matter rooster or ugly or disabled the thing will live it's entire life at our place if he/she survived the great fall! He is always for the underdog.

    I want an incubator sooooooooo bad but really don't need one because my hens are broody all the time. I just want one because everyone else has one. [​IMG]
