the kids dived into the box to see what it was...
Our egg incubator!
Disinfected and running. It is recommended to run the incubator for at least 24 hours before setting the eggs. I am not sure when the eggs will be delivered (I obviously ordered them after the incubator arrived) but I want to be prepared for when they do.
We were going to get an incubator with an automatic turner but changed our mind thinking that the kids would learn more with hands on experience, which means the kids have to turn the eggs 3-5 times a day for 18 days.
We had to have a go with our hen eggs. I am not sure if it is going to help much as I can't even work out where the yolk is. hmmm maybe it just takes practice. The eggs look really pretty though, like mini galaxies :)
Yay! Lots more eggs for baking...maybe, hopefully :P
