    Yes, there are lots. Sally has a thread for helping to get over it and process them.

    *sigh*Fine, you can have a couple eggs- broody bum.[​IMG]

    Gave her two from my incubator; don't know if I want to risk any more than that. She's young and has tried to go broody ever since she started laying, just a month ago. We'll see what happens tomorrow morning.

    She was quite happy when I took the ceramic eggs away and put two real ones down- tucked them under and hunkered down on them

    Update: still at it. She was up for a while to get food and went back to her box, scaring off the 8 week old chick from "her eggs"

    incubatorwarehouse.com created them. IncuView incubator. Never used an incubator before, so I have hope!

    Incubator warehouse is amazing!! It's like being a kid in a candy store. [​IMG] Or at least that's how I feel...lol. And I haven't even bought anything yet!

    I'm sure your hatch will go well. And then you'll get chicks...and be forever hooked. [​IMG]
