The Incubator

Here is the incubator that I am using. It is a Hova-Bator. This model is fairly old. The newer ones look kind of like space capsules and most have a bigger viewing window.

I forgot to take a picture of the eggs before I put in the automatic turner. So here are the eggs in the automatic turner inside of the incubator. I love all of the colors! To the side is my hygrometer. The egg turner makes a full rotation in four hours. It is quiet and slow. It was so strange to wake up this morning and not have to turn the eggs! I didn't know that I would miss that ritual so quickly!

The countdown is on! Only two weeks until baby chicks should be hatching!

I have been loving all of these little chick updates. They crack me up!

Hopefully, by the time you have your chicks, I"ll FINALLY have mine hatched, too.

Love you.
