Also I have been helping a chick for 2 days and it finally hatched!
I feel the same about mine. Plus a possible mini army of my own is nice.
this made me smile, as usual Saris just love you! @Saris
Glad you are smiling!!!
Sally, one of these days when I'm not already overrun with too many chicks, I'm going to ask to buy some hatching eggs from your project birds - I have been SO impressed...
Well, folks, I think I may have a stress fracture or some similar type injury of my foot. It hurts A LOT, and it's that deep bone pain hurt, and it's swollen. I had SO much I needed to do today, and I got almost none of it done - though I did partially puzzle out my egg eater situation. (Dax, I've been thinking about you constantly - is your injury left or right?)
I can't have this - I HAVE A THREE DAY WEEKEND! AND CHORES TO DO! AND ANOTHER BROODER TO SET UP! AND GROWOUT PENS TO BUILD! AND AND AND....
Sorry, I wasn't intending to complain so much as I just needed to vent my frustration.

Oh no, I hope you heal up right quick.
Hello friends, am glad to be apart of you. Am Ugandan from Africa
Started back yard chicken last September 2015. The project is interesting. The birds are laying eggs. But they all insist on using one nest so I have found hatching difficult.
Most of the eggs are wasted. Can I incubate using the cheapest means possible.
If one of your hens is broody ( wanting to hatch eggs) you can find a way to separate her and give her some fertile eggs to set on.
