Chicken egg incubator
While walking around the yard doing some chair hopping this morning I noticed the UPS truck going down the road. Maybe my egg incubator has arrived. I went out by the front gate to see and it was sitting there in it’s box.
Locked the chickens in the carrot patch
I would open that box soon but first I needed to lock the chickens in the carrot patch. I’ve tried to get them into the carrot patch to eat but they’d rather eat out in the yard so today I decided to lock them in the carrot patch all day so they had no choice.
I lured them to the carrot patch with some chicken feed and shut the gate on them. Most of the chickens where in the carrot patch except for a few of them that didn’t follow the food and were in the rest of the yard which was ok.
I set it up in my house and turned it on to test it out. It has a loud beeper when the temperature or humidly goes out of whack which I think might be too loud for the house so I think I will eventually set it up for use out in my feeder shed. But first I need to cycle it for a day and make sure it holds the temperature and humidly where is is supposed to. and I know how to use it properly. It seems to be functioning well so far right out of the box.
I continued chair hopping and puttering around the yard not really able to get started on anything.
Electric fan radiator bracket construction
The bracket being tested on the radiator. The electric fan will eventually get mounted in the bracket. I made the bracket to make it easy to take the fan in or out for maintenance reasons. It’s easier to work on stuff when it goes in and out easy.
That’s all I could do on that today until I get the rest of my new parts which are supposed to arrive tomorrow.
It was another nice evening so I sat in the yard and chair hopped for the rest of the day.
