June 3 – eggs are pipping, including one of the BBS Orpingtons!!!  I am so excited I can hardly stand it.

However, we did have plans, which got me out of the house and made me leave the incubator alone.  We went to a police auction and we got this for three dollars:

It’s an old printer enclosure from the days of loud dot-matrix printers.  I see it as a future incubator enclosure/chick brooder, complete with storage cabinet below.  We also got a bunch of magazine holders for our $3.  We also bought some Food Savers to vacuum pack stuff for the freezer.  The reason we went was to check out a stainless steel table David wanted to use for chicken processing.  We got it for $50, which is a steal.

Next week we’re going to a farm auction.
