Painting Boxes

The guys got their paintbrushes out today and painted the outside of the brooder boxes. I think Joseph got more paint on himself than on the boxes, but Jonathan and Joshua hung in there to help complete the task. I also got the hatcher cleaned out today and ready for the eggs. We will be moving the eggs to the hatcher tomorrow afternoon and hopefully the eggs will begin hatching on Saturday. We are a bit nervous since the heaters haven't arrived yet (talk about last minute!). We have a friend with one on standby for us if ours don't arrive in time. The chicks will stay in the hatcher until they dry out (I think this takes about 24 hours) and then the brooder boxes will definitely need to be ready!
