    Yeah! I'm going to use it as a hatcher, because it has that removable liner on it.

    if you put the barred rocks in with the Sumatra or Phoenix, you should get sexlinked chicks. Barred males, Black females.

    Sure you can get past the sweet bunniness. Walk into my barn unannounced. My Am. Chinchilla buck Maximus has a bad habit of "spraying" strangers, and his aim is dead on. His cage is at shoulder height for me, so he's also gotten me right in the side of the head when I came in at night without talking to them as I came in. I tell him all the time he's lucky I like him and he makes a good daddy. His girls are great moms, but neither are particularly "cuddly". They are downright awful to remove from their cages. One good slice from a rabbit hind foot, along with "eau du buck", and the sweet bunniness goes right out the window. Now, my Mini Rex are a different story!

    I wish there were something that was heat resistant but wouldn't mess up heat and humidity/water channel function to line the LG styrofoam bators with. I might try paper towel partial lines on the wire, but I'm worried it could affect air flow and/or humidity. Thoughts?

    I think breed may also play into this. Meat rabbits are not as cute as the smaller non-meat rabbits. Like, I have no desire to eat dutch rabbits - although I hear they have a great bone to meat ratio...

    Well, the good news is, ANY of the breeds that I might want or need to put them with, would end up being sex-linked. Sumatra and Phoenix are two. But then if I get more than one roo from the BLR Wyandottes or Black Copper Marans, the barred rocks may end up going in there too. And those would ALSO be sex-link chicks.

    And for Large-Fowl Cochin, I'm getting two blue females, and three silver-laced straight-run. So I may end up with two or roosters THERE. If I do, the barred rocks may go in there, and that would once again leave me with sex links.

    Although if they go in with the BLRW, I would end up with all of the males being barred - but half of them would be blue, and half would be black. Kinda cool. But I guess mostly I'll just see how every roo handles his girls, and how many roos I get from those straight run orders, and then move the barred rocks accordingly.
