A photo of GaFarm Woman PamI wanted to answer some questions about the the incubator here on the farm.

Did you build or buy the incubator?

It is a large walk-in incubator that FarmMan built. You can see more here –> Incubator 

The building was empty and not finished for several years (it still needs painting, always something waiting to be finished around a farm) until last year when FarmMan decided he wanted to start hatching eggs again.

The incubator building

 Years ago he hatched and sold all types of poultry and enjoyed it. He insulated the building

Hi Nebraska Dave, Our chickens lay the eggs that we use in the incubator. The breeds we hatched were Silver Sebright, Golden Sebright, and B.B.Reds bantams. Silver and Golden Polish, Buff Orpingtons, Dominiques(Domineckers),and Light Brahmas. It is always amazing to see the little fellows break out of their shells and hatch. Plus always a real sense of accomplishment. Thank you so much for the comment. Pam
