    Those little motors go bad in the turners. I had to replace one after only 3 days of use. Luckily it was warranted.

    I free range so they don't need as much commercial feed. I also grow fodder (wheat and flax sprouts) for them and the rabbits. I usually spend $30-$45 every 10 days.

    Well let's hope the eggs will be ok not turning for a little while until we can get something figured out. 12 hours into the incubation and things are going wrong. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They should be fine for a while. Run out and get another turner! Or 2 or 5!

    I'll have to. I can't be letting my goose eggs die. Me and that feed store will be having words if they sold me used crap that was already returned once.

    I free range too, but I only have 4 girls. I spend about 17 dollars every 3 weeks on a 30 lb bag, so not a lot. This may be a stupid question, but how do you grow fodder? Where do you buy wheat? Do you grow it outside or inside? Does it require a plant light if grown inside? Sorry for all the questions.[​IMG]

    Go to YouTube they have lots of videos on growing fodder, it's simple. I get wheat from the grain mill down the road. I get a huge bag for lik ten bucks, will last til mid to late summer? Fodder is like growing a chia pet but in trays with a little water pump that waters it on a timer. I have six stacked on a simple PVC shelving thing I made. Takes six days to grow to what I need, kind of likebean sprouts, so when I start, make one pan a day, then in six days the one on the top is ready, feed it to your peeps and rotate the Reston the shelves up and put the empty on the bottom and fill with seed. Water drips on the top pan only then drips down and ends up in a container underneath were the pump recycles it.
