What in the world is under our feet!!??(I put pine bedding down first time)
Little porcupines earlier this morning then suddenly they had feathers!

They aren't cute lil fuzz balls anymore

Hatch day cometh on monday yet again!!!

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.

Now a newly renovated brooder!!!

I couldn't help but think... What if I need a better brooder?... And this is what came out of that thought!!!
It has a water bottle instead of a fount because they won't drown in a water bottle!!!

Upgraded my bachelor cage!!!

I am very proud of this... I know it's simple but thats me..

I really think!

We are going to have chicks in a few days!!! The eggs I ordered are shivering when I turn them!!! So I am pretty sure that means they have babies in them!!!<3 <3 <3

Going to do an eggsperiment...

The Chick-Bator! I know it is a piece of junk so called... But I am interested in seeing how it works... If it works... Next month I am ordering it...

I hate when they don't make it...

I was clumsy and dropped an egg.. It was close to hatch so I thought it might make it.. I was wrong.... He died...

2 new eggs in lockdown!!!

Just set 2 more eggs in lockdown!!! I am hoping soon to have chicks!!! *crosses fingers* Been working very hard!!!

Sunday, July 3, 2011

Another egg in lockdown!

Egg 3 in lockdown! We shall see if we get any chickies!

Oooh yes!!!

Thermostat clicks off 100.8 F and on 100.9 F!!!! I AM AWESOME!!! Humidity was a tad high... So I dumped a bit of water out... But the bator is running awesome!!!!

Ahh!!! Modification yet again to my Coleman-Bator!!!

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!!!

ALSO!!! View my BYC Page!!!!

Here it is!!!

Nothing amazing but maybe cool...

Busying my mind....

Trying to find a way to busy my mind... My Nintendo DS doesn't come till about when my shipment of eggs do... *sigh* What to do what to do.... Three cracked viable eggs, and no hatched yet.... -___-
 I need a soda or a hard drink!!!

Well... Feel a little better after that disaster...

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.....!


While I was at my moms... I get a txt from my boyfriend... Hey the cats knocked over the incubator... Broke one of your eggs... :-/ 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....

Here's a picture of my Little Giant Box

In case you wanted to know...... It cost me $69.60 at O.K. Feed & Supply
Made of Polyurethane I think is what they called it... Pretty much STRYOFOAM!!!

Just thought I would post a few pics of my new incubator....

With my eggies in it!!!!
July 4th a couple should be going into lockdown~!!!

I absolutely adore Button Quail and so the "adventure" begins!!!!
