Yer just experiencing the former.

Buncha Outdoor PET chickens, ducks, 5 Toulouse geese, and 7 turkeys....so far. Plus 2 wiener dogs, 2 bunnies, a rescue cat which owns me and a new kitten. Oh, yeah: and a house silkie....

I am going to be on a road trip for a week during the Valentine's hatch.  I've already started looking for a converter that would allow me to plug the incubator into the lighter plug in my car...

Its OHD (obsessive hatching disorder) cool
Edit: apparently I forgot how to spell

Nothing wrong with the poultry OCD. I have it too~

Aaactually, they have extention plugs for cars. There's an incubator, genesus I think. Its a styrafoam hovabator and several of the books(I've called every hatchery in america, I'm sure. I called and ordered lotsa free catalogs when I was twelve... laugh all ya want. That's serious obsessive chicken disorder for ya.)

Well, it's a hovabater with all the advanced electric stuff, but you can buy a car plug for it. Isn't that the best frickin thing ever? 12v car plug...

I have the inverter for my car...because it allows me to plug in the Eco-Glow, too. That lets me keep the staggered hatches going, no matter what. You know what' really obsessive? I visited the Agricultural Hall of Fame's National Poultry Museum in Bonner Springs, Kansas, so I could look at hundreds of the old fire-powered incubators, hatchers and brooders...so I could make my own plans...just in case.

THAT'S OBSESSIVE.

I got pics of a lot of the amazing stuff...should get it off of my phone so I can share it!!

Huh, well looks like I've offended several people... I'm sorry...

I'm not a vegetarian. YET!

I said the same thing as I posted a few days ago in sixth grade agriculture... even the TEACHER called me a hypocrite. I hated that clss. Cows this, cows that. Blegh! I don't care about coooows! I know this already! Sheesh, that's what I get for going t school with morons. And all we did was book work. Passed  with a 27%.

Bah. I'm entitled to my opinions, aren't I?

Buut anyways, I agree it's better than store stuff. With their horomones, chemicals, slaughter houses, etc.

I wonder if chicken patties and nuggets are even real chicken...
...
I had something written right here, but I deleted it coz I would be banned from BYP fo saying it. I read the rules, believe it or not... mostly. And a lot of people would hate me for it.

Is it weid that I have chickens, yet I rarely eat eggs? Are eggs even considered a meat?

Actually, I think they are under dairy, if remember right. They are next to the milk/cheese at most stores. huhu

Here are my six hatched chicks.  One of them is not like the other....

These photos were taken the instant I set all chicks down in the temporary brooder.  They aren't accustomed to the EcoGlo unit yet.  (I have pushed them under its shelter.)  They are currently wobbling around underneath there.

I needed to move them out of the incubator, but haven't got the ginormous brooder set up outside in the coop, yet.  And this is their first night!!  You know!!!

Hooray for the good news!   jumpy

Nice to have what looked like a dismal hatch make you smile!    thumbsup

(and I mean that in the sense of it looked so  hopeless at one point and now it's not!)
