Later in the afternoon, after Isabelle left, we work a little in the barn, just to be around Luke and Iggy a bit, then went to GNH for some clamps and a light fixture and bulbs to supplement the heating element in the hatching box, since we couldn’t get the temperature up to 101 degrees. It would only climb to 99 degrees and that isn’t good enough in a still air incubator to hatch the eggs. The added 15w light bulb should make the difference.
Tomorrow morning early, I’ll leave Iggy and Luke out, along with all the other critters if it is to be nice, otherwise, I’ll just leave the alpacas out, because they can be under the porch or inside the barn. They won’t stand out in the rain like a dumb chicken or turkey until they get sick. Here are a bunch of pictures of today……. Enjoy!
