FINALLY I see signs of life in ALL FOUR eggs!!! Even slight movement in 3 of them!!! 1 thru 3 have movement and veining, and 4 have veining and embryo!!!
I am trying to get enough donations to keep my hatching and blogging alive. If I get enough donations I may start raffling off *FREE HATCHING EGGS*!!! NO you are not required to donate! It is merely a suggestion. My blogging will always be free for everyone!

These are 2 eggs my coturnix female Marge laid in two days... One being... Significantly larger... Poor thing!!!
Step 1: Cut a pop bottle off little higher than center, take off lid, and invert.
VIOLA! A .60 fountain feeder!!!(depending on size of bottle 3 liter may be .99)
Don't stop anything from making changes. It could make it better!!! Make it your own!!!

I am hoping for more fuzzy butts!!! As I turned the eggs I placed them on a flat surface and they wiggled, well most of them... And so hopefully we will have a few more fuzzballs running around here! Going to make more brooders for them too.. Going to have waay to many brooders and cages!!! Buying coturnix eggs monday if all goes well, and make a cage and brooder for them as well. Selling a few of my own eggs to a local person because I have some more stellar gamebird button eggs coming tomorrow most likely (a good selection of pied and fallow I hear). So I can't accommodate too terribly many more eggs so I offered up my eggs, in exchange for bator space. Especially since I am getting coturnix eggs I will need that bator space.

Yes... It's true... I have modified it again... I took out the cheap plastic window held in by duct tape and siliconed in a pane of glass...
Ugly... Yes... Perhaps a lil less efficient.. Idk yet.... But one things for sure.... IT LOOKS ALOT CLEARER AND STURDIER!!! The plastic window was falling in and letting humidity and heat out through the roof!!! So tell me what you think... I need some feedback!!!

Came home.. Saw the embryo hanging from the bator grate... Fun I know, then saw the another is cracked.. Amazing!!! So I cracked it open the rest of the way, another embryo.. Well thats good to know my kids are going more fertile now... Then I got a comment on my wall post on FB from stellar game birds saying I am on the shipping list for Tuesday!!! YAY!!! Now all I need to do is cat proof my incubator! O.o FML.....!

I put a new light fixture in it!!! Which made it so it would hold a 100watt bulb, and moved the thermostat closer to it! Less than 1/2 a degree fluctuation!!!
Pardon the quality most pics are from my phone....
