    I got an incubator and guess what? It works!!!

    Maybe a little too well... I gotta get rid of these birds now so that the eggs that are in the incubator will have a brooder available to them!!

    Hopefully this will work:

    If not, what do I do with all of them? What do you do when you have too many chickens??


    EDIT, here's a pretty picture:

    I won't hatch if I don't have a home for what I'm hatching. I will hatch birds for people & put them in the brooder for pick up. If your trying to hatch & sell the birds your gonna need a brooder not just a cardboard box's & some pen's. It's not fair to the animal to be cooped up in a box's for a great length of time. They need their space. This is just my opinion. I was gonna start hatching & selling chicks but started thinking what if I get stuck with the birds I don't have a place to raise them. I have 4 coops & there big coops like 300 sq ft each but I still don't have enough room to just keep hatching.

    Yes, I have brooder / pen / coop area for the birds. I just **want** to keep hatching. I also have places to put the birds if they get older and nobody wants them. I suppose my initial post may not reflect that. Don't worry, no birds were harmed in the creation of this reading material. ;}
