    I am on day 19 and excited! How many hatches have I done? I don't know... too many. I thought it would be fun to walk through this with people on the same boat. [​IMG]
    my eggs are in this small incubator I made, I hatched out about 45 this year in an incubator I made, just like this one. 8 diff. batches about 6 eggs a time., I am on my last 6. day 19. eggs all look like day 19. 2 even more advanced. 4 are bantam mix, 2 are full sized.

    I candled- hey this is supposed to be lockdown, it is okay they are dry hatch anyway. one is in air cell, the rest have the tale/tale slop before they go into the air cell.

    whoops this is side ways- just a wooden box to brood my chicks when they hatch. below are 2 shots of my incubator. IN the first pic I used extra skeewers to raise the lid higher to cool- the blanket keeps the box warm-cusions are because box is on floor- best on a counter. see the little rubber dealies I have to hold blanket up?[​IMG]

    I write on my eggs alot- I write an egg name the egg with the pip is "Sumi" don't ask why I name them first thing that comes to mind, and the air cell levels.
