    That's what I thought. The chicks should be fine during the Winter here in the South.

    I have chicks hatching this Saturday for a friend. The pullets should be laying this Summer.

    I have some fertile eggs so I guess I'll set some today. That means I'm in.

    There are eggs with 2 different due dates already in the incubator. Some due Christmas morning and 2 due on the 20th - I think.

    Whoever heard of worrying about housing before having the chicks? "Don't count your eggs before they're hatched " remember?
    Hatch away, and then worry about where you can put them!

    That's usually true. It's more about how broke I am at the moment.



    I love doing hatch-a-longs with all of you! The only down side... The chick I hatched out last year, still isn't laying! I hatched a GCM, Her's are the eggs I was really hoping to set, but no such luck. She has a nice red comb, good sz, and 8 months old!

    So, last night, we're getting ready to go to bed and I'm sitting there, thinking about blocking the light on the incubator so it doesn't bother my husband (light at night bugs him) but I decided that it's not bright enough to be a bother. He sees me looking and asks what I'm doing so I told him.

    DH: well, why is the light on?
    Me: because, it has to warm up.
    DH: why does it have to warm up?
    Me: because tomorrow is set date for the new years hatch a long *evil grin*

    I "forgot" to tell him that I was setting it up and starting hatching season early lol. Glad he loves me and I can get away with this stuff :) he's going to be surprised though. He loves cochins and we don't have any so I'm ordering some hatching eggs (and some silkies for the kids) and since he never knows or cares what's in the bator, I'll get to surprise him when they hatch :)
