    I know the feeling, I lost out and started mine humming again!! [​IMG] I thought I had it hid from DH but he found it and asked What is in there? I thought you were done hatching? Where are you going to put these chicks? He was just full of questions, I went [​IMG] But I smile everytime I look over at the bator! lol I think it's good for my health [​IMG]

    I just put 12 silkie eggs in my bator and I live in Pa which means the chicks will need to stay in the house all winter long. [​IMG] DH didn't think of that when he said I could get more. [​IMG]

    I know mine will be calling to me. I have 7 eggs due to hatch tomorrow. But I'm going to "try" to stop until late Jan early Feb. It just gets too darn cold here for babies.

    OK! I started gathering up some eggs from my silkies that just started laying. I want to see what my new roo is doing. That's a good reason as any, right?
