I don't see how making people feel welcome is an issue - you can easily scroll past them if you don't want to see them. Again, we have hundreds of people all set to hatch at the same time. It's not easy and towards the end, we are ready to pull our hair out. (or at least I am)
Good luck to you.
Thanks so much for what you do! This is my first year and I'm already having so much fun.

All three are such good choices. I've never seen a naked-neck Brahma before though.

Welcome! So glad you could join us!
It's the deciding what to hatch that is half the fun!

I'm glad your feeling better. Skimming through it makes it go much faster (some how my brother can read a book that takes me three days in a few hours).

Its my first year also, but I feel like I've been on for years. This is a great site!

Bantams feather out even faster. I can't believe it when I have a two week old bantam that is fully feathered and crowing!

You can't make everyone 100% happy all of the time, it's impossible. Heck, I can't make myself happy 100% of the time, and I'm in control of me. ;) This thread flies at times, sometimes I have time for that, sometimes I don't. I've got the amazing option of skipping posts or just not coming to the thread if that's what makes me happy. There are lots of good folks on here, having a good time, stimulating and multiplying the excitement for the upcoming hatch. I feel it adds a ton of fun to what could otherwise be "just another hatch" (for those that hatch a lot) and gives a big support base for those that don't.
As was said, if you don't like it, you aren't required to read. If you don't like one part of it, scroll works well.
I wish you happiness in the threads you frequent. For the rest of us...
Woot! Woot! Woot!
SET ALL THE EGGS!!!!!!!!
Now, I have to run to the P.O., my eggs are here!
I can't wait till I can set my eggs too!
Best of luck with your hatching!

I'm the same way when my chicks are hatching.

Muscovys are really cool, I can't wait to see yours when they hatch.
