I've been wanting to try hatching eggs so I could get better quality birds than hatchery and also get a better selection since hatcheries usually sell out of the "good breeds." So I've just placed a bid on 18+ hatching eggs. When I go to town saturday I'll be picking up my little giant incubator and maybe the automatic turner. I've been reading on here about hatching eggs and it all sounds so complicated! I hope I don't mess up. Of course BF probably won't be very happy but I'll probably volunteer to build the new runs myself to make him happy but knowing him he'll probably still do it himself. lol. I've assured him that any more runs that are built won't be as intricate as the one he's already made me. The existing coop will be moved closer to the house once the house is built and will house my "pet" chickens, aka: the friendly ones, while the rest of the runs will be for the experiaments (Mua hahaha) and the "for sale/eating" chickens. These will probably be more of a run with a cover over half of it for shelter. Wish me luck on winning the auction!
