On a side note, Monday the dozen silkies and Mille Fleur D'Uccles go into lockdown... Not going to tell my husband about the 30 eggs I just received from the Post Office on Thurs...
Hi, firedragon... long time no see! Hope all is well with you. Sorry about other special babies... but one is better than none! Congrats on all the ones that hatched!!!
The Thursday eggs are on a need/know basis, and you don't feel the need for him to know? What he doesn't know can't hurt you kind of thing... right? I completely understand.

2 months without an incubator??? OMG... I almost went crazy not hearing the hum of my bator for 4 months, but at least it was in my office where I could look at the box and know it was ready at a moment's notice. Poor girl...
