Mary. The hatch day is New Years Day. The set day is December 11th, LOTS of fun! C'mon, You know you wanna! @1muttsFan: Is that allowed?! Lurking without hatching?....well I guess in your case it's alright, you ARE in Michigan after all. I have not committed yet.....the kids have a little over a month to talk me into this winter hatching craziness.
