To get you up to speed:
As you know, I have 10 chickens, 8 laying hens and 2 roosters. As a (home) school project we decided to let my hens hatch chicks. They did not want to. We still wanted to have chicks so we made an incubator. It’s kind of like this one here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXzsGZrD91I. Only better. And Guess What! We Have fertile eggs!!!!! (Finally!) I was so happy when we found out. We have been incubating them about 4 days. I have to turn the eggs at 8 am, 4 pm, and 12 am. I keep track of how I turn the eggs by: Lightly drawing an “x” on one side and an “o” on the other side of the eggs. It’s harder than it sounds. —————————————————————————————————————————————
