    Breed and gender question

Right now...

    I’ve never hatched anything but got an offer for a cheap incubator and eggs for $20 so I said sure why not. I’m not holding my breath as it’s literally a plastic bowl with a lid, a lightbulb and aluminum foil.... but figure if we get something great if not it was a learning experience. We...
