    I finally got my Gold Phoenix Eggs today, they are sitting in the basket resting, waiting to go in the Bator. These will leave just enough room in my Bator for the Blue/Black Orpington Eggs I have coming [​IMG]
    Hubby saw the email about the Orp eggs and just started shaking his head [​IMG] He is the best enabler in the world [​IMG]

    Most of what I have is mutt eggs with about 4 or 5 from my pair of Standard Black Cochins.
    Now I am thinking I need to buy another bator for a hatcher, but I think these are spaced about 4 days apart so should be enough time to furiously hatch and move to brooders.
    After all of these hatch I am done for awhile. I am exhausted from taking care of the 5 outside, the 16 chicks in Brooders in the spare bathroom, checking the eggs in the bator, 5 horses , 2 mini donkeys and 6 dogs with one very pregnant and grouchy Jack Russell that is due in a couple weeks.
