Mary, you'll get a chuckle out of this. Yesterday, we got some Chinese take out. The fortune cookie said, "You will receive an unexpected gift from an acquaintance". Ha, too late! I do not believe in superstition but I thought it was funny after receiving an unexpected box of hatching eggs from you!
I have my old Hova up and getting to temp. I don't think I've used it for 3-4 years. I know one bator was on the table when the fire happened and it was replaced with my new Genesis, but I thought it was the even older model, squarish Hova that DH bought at a yard sale and installed a fan into just afterward. The only one I could find is the original one that he bought me when he skipped lunch and saved his lunch money way, way back for my very first hatch. So, I guess it was the other one that was sitting on the coffee table during the fire. It does bug me, though, that I remembered wrong. I hope the wafers I have are good, but if not, the co-op carries them.
Been ages since I had TWO bators up and running simultaneously. Guess which one is newer?
And, though this isn't Finn's thread, I caught him snoozing on my recliner as I walked to the craft room to photograph the incubator set up. I did make him his very own quilt and put it there to save the poor seat from destruction, but that doesn't cover the arms of the chair, and he lurves those.
Someone is coming Saturday to see the two sons of Atlas I've been trying to sell. He may take both. If he asks about the #2, I may sell that guy as well, but I'll cross that bridge at the time. I've been letting Atlas run with Wynette and the four chicks. He goes right for poor Wynette and the babies scatter. They don't challenge dear old Dad like they did the hens, LOL. I guess he's kinda scary.
