    I wanted to post about it before I forget it.
    The set-up:
    I'm in the process of collecting eggs to send off for my first test hatch.
    I couldn't fall asleep until almost 4 AM this morning, because my SO was gone having another sleep study done.
    I watched a program on fetal surgery right before going to bed.
    I was worried about my chickens.

    The dream:

    I dreamed that instead of shipping eggs off, I received eggs in the mail, 5 of them.
    The person that sent them had cut square openings all over the eggshells so that I could watch the development of the chicks.
    When I picked the eggs up to put them in the bator, two immediately broke open and little balloons popped up that said "sorry, not a good egg. please try again".
    I set the other three eggs in the bator and waited.
    I had to go to the store for brooder supplies so I asked my Dad (who lives in Florida, not here) to watch the the bator for me.
    While I was gone my Dad decided that they would hatch better if he soaked them - bator and all - in a tub of water.
    I got home and dried the whole thing off. I lifted each egg out of the bator to check if they were dry enough and they immediately hatched. Two pullets, a pink one and a purple one and a huge full grown rooster!
    I was running around with them stuffed in my pockets trying to set up their brooder when I woke up.

    I seriously need to limit my nighttime visits to BYC *shaking my head*

    Quote:Yesterday morning I heated my SO some tortillas on the stove, then went out to tend my chickens.
    When I came back in the house there was the most awful smell. [​IMG]
    I looked at him and he said you left the fire on under that teflon griddle. YUCK! It smelled horrible.
