I fired up the bator haven't hatched out chicks for years ``` I've forgotten a lot ~ if not for the record sheets I'd be up a creek ```
Chicks pecking their way out of the egg is something every child loves to see ``` Inside the egg is a chicken even when its two cells ~ it's chicken ```

The Turner will hold 28 eggs ~ I've just placed 4 ~ to Zero in the bater ~ been a while ```

These are record sheets ~ daily log of : time checked, temperature and humidity ``` One for the 4 lonely eggs in the bater for a test run and the other for a test run done a few years back ~ showing 11 out of 11 hatched ~ 100% is a good score ```

This batch is 4 day at the mountain spread and 3 days on the high desert ~ we'll see how it goes ```

I made this incubator some years back ~ the girls use to love watching the chicken from ~ Fetus to Chick ~ after a couple days the eggs can be candled and the chick can be seen ~ heart beating ~ very like Human ```
