    I am so ******!!!!! I woke up to a huge mess this morning! I can't believe what my husband did. And when I got mad about it, he gets mad a me and says we have enough chicks, it's stupid for me to get to mad about a couple little insignificant chicks!!!!! I am so mad that I do not know what to do!!!! Here are some pics. And he didn't even clean up the mess, just left it for me. He did think he was helping. But that is beside the point.

    He said those were already dead, I don't know if they were or not. I talked to him and told him why you don't do that, and he has sent said that he wouldn't touch the bator again! Still ****** but I am calmed down some now. He said he was helping them hatch. You would think after me talking about hatching that he wouldve known better. The mess is still there and he will clean it up when he gets off from work. I'm even gonna make him clean my bator really good to!

    OK. Didn't realize he was trying to help them hatch. It sounded like he killed them so you wouldn't have anymore chicks! Lol I was shocked!

    I don't let my hubby near the bators anymore...I asked him one time to turn the dial up one notch and he turned it too far making it go to 112! Lol thank god I didn't have eggs in it yet.

    Right, when he is wrong he acts like that and it so irritates me! I am still mad about it, because I hatched twice last yr this is my first time this year, and you would think he'd know better.
    He told me he won't do it anymore so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he won't. I told him that if the next batch goes to day 24 and there are still eggs he can check them as long as there doesn't look like there is any life, but not before I say so. Wow! and yes thank god no eggs in there. I have my other one full with 39 chicken eggs and 1 quail eggs, so he better not mess with it.
