    Ok- So when I get home from work today, I am going to get all the bators running. I have NO IDEA how many eggs I am setting, since the bator space is all "rented out" to Mahonri, Pastrymama, Alohachickens, and then whatever The Sherrif sends me.

    By the seat of my pants, people. Seat of my pants.

    Pshaw.

    Boyfriend sent me a listing of an on sale incubator the other day... I told him NO WAY! I'm already afraid he was going to leave me with the current amount of biddies running around, then the ducks, then another 18 or so eggs, and another coop and brooder on his list to build... but he's apparently caught the illness.
