    Looking for a hatch-along buddy! I have a broody Buff Orpington that due on November 5th (my brothers birthday, actually) and it will be my second broody ever! She has 11 eggs, or did last time I could get close enough to count. ;)
    I would love to have some others whose story I can follow as well! [​IMG] I'm so excited!

    Thank you! You should see her when I approach her nest! She puffs up all her feathers and squawks like a mama dinosaur. [​IMG] What kind of eggs? I miss incubating, but I have so many chickens already, I certainly don't need to hatch anymore right now!

    Started my first incubation of Phoenix Barred rock crosses,along with 15 pure bred Phoenixs.First time incubating on my own.Collected eggs over a 2 week period,hope this doesn't mess up hatching rate.Incubator maintaining 100 degrees and water tray kept filled.Wish me luck.
