So how the deuces did THIS happen? We have at present, including the chicks we hatched a month ago, 31 chickens. I have 16 eggs in one incubator going into lockdown tomorrow. I have a broody hen that has been sitting on 11 eggs for 4 days (started out as 7 eggs but she's continued to lay, and I have seen the rooster "fertilize" her so I know they're good and fertile). I just received another 18 shipped eggs today that we are setting tomorrow. How did this venture for 2-3 hens last year on Memorial Day weekend turn into.... THIS? Dang, I knew I had chicken math disease bad when I realized we were up to 7 hens... now I think 7 is just not enough! Hahaha... and now that we live where we can have roosters, it's only gonna get worse. But I think I won't have to buy any more hatching eggs after this.
