Re: Good Morning!

Is it just this area or have you guys noticed a huge downturn in poultry keeping? I started back in twelve years ago and many of the friends I made along the way no longer have poultry, even people who were in it for years. I'm out of it myself but I always thought I could drop in and look at frien...

Re: Chicken Recipes

You can boil the chicken, which will give you some nice stock and then put in the oven for 1/2 hour, which will give you a respectable impression of a roasted chicken.

Question? Would it be a big mistake to wash the eggs in order to candle them? I am guessing yes. I suppose that’s what those fancy egg brushes are for.
I am feeling a little discouraged.
You can wash with lukewarm water, it will not do any harm.

Re: Eggs on Lockdown

I never trusted the read out and did my own measuring on the inside, to double check things. The condensation in the window in mine might have been result of something different from yours, but I found in mine that even with re-sealing the window the condensation was back day four or five and after ...

Re: Good Morning!

Good morning,
Not sure who got our forecasted sunny day, but we sure didn't so far, so off to-stick as many plants in the garden before the rains come again
dodging Mosquitos and black flies in the process , expecting locusts as predicted by KB to arrive any moment.
Have a good one!

Re: Eggs on Lockdown

2. I tried to wipe off the condensation (with efficiency of movement when opening the lid) and found that the condensation was in between the plastic windows of the lid. Anyone ever have that happen? And what does it mean? I have had that happen with a NEW incubator on a trial run. It affected the ...
