    I "axcidently" set 24 eggs in the incubator when apparently i was ony suppose to set 6 according to my mom... :O She found out and kinda mad at me... [​IMG] But i think she is getting over it. As long as not ALL 24 chicks hatch i think i will be ok. lol

    start looking for someone who wants some even if you have to give them away that will make mom relax if she knows they have homes that arent yours!

    Like bethsplace said, line up some potential homes for the extras and mom will be much happier.

    Some of them will not be fertile, some will quit and some won't hatch so you may end up with a few extra. out of 7 we had 2 and out of 36 we got 12 and 2 died later. After all of that we still don't know yet how many roosters their will be. you never know and own up to what you have done and I wish the best on your hatch.

    P.S. You can always sell your extras on craigslist and help pay for the food!

    Alright I am off the hook! I told her I was sorry and she said it was ok and she wasn't really mad at me just didn't want me having so many chickens. (She doesn't really like animals)
    And I already told her I will sell all roosters or any extras I don't need. And of course my dad is always up for more chickens [​IMG]
