    If I decide to incubate eggs in my house, wont that attract mice and other rodents? Please tell me I am wrong lol.

    I doubt incubating in your home would attract any rodents any more than what's in your house right now, like food

    I think incubating eggs attracts chicks. They seem to show up frequently after a few weeks. [​IMG]

    this reminds me of my mom. I keep my pets feed in the house (dog food, cat food, my quails food)...and she was like "that will attract mice!!!"

    and im like "and what? the food in the cubborts, the crumbs behind the couch wont?" [​IMG]
