    My sons are wanting to do a hatching project for 2013. They want to hatch eggs (any kind of eggs) from all of the lower 48 states. I figured this would be the best place to voice it about and see if anyone would be interested in participating.

    Tell us a little more about the project , how many eggs for each state? what kind of bator , I mean will you have room to do them all at once or are you gonna do it over the year? what do they plan on doing with the chicks they hatch.?

    I think it would have to be at least a couple from each state-- in case the hatch rate isn't that great. The idea is to do it all over the year, but we have three incubators, so space would probably not be that horrible of an issue. The chicks we would hatch would live here with us or at Grandma's house :) (we're zoned for them and there is a PALACE for chickens at my MILs :)-- our coop is smaller :))

    That sounds like a really neat idea , it would be fun to keep some diary of the eggs , chicks , chickens from each state. Have you gotten any response from anyone?

    My 3 month old Nephew passed in September, my DH'S 29 year old cousin (leaving a wife a child), and a 31 year family friend (leaving a wife and three sons) passed in the last couple months. We've decided that any chick sales, eggs, profitability from this will go to help them out.

    So, for Domanik Owen, Dwight, and Damond!
