    I set my Buff Orpingtons last night and I hope Santa delivers. I found out the thermometer I was using for my styrobator was reading 10 degrees to low!!! Now I have two for safety. I hope for cheeping instead for bells!

    GOOD LUCK!! I had a similar thermometer tragedy. I have a digital now and make sure new batteries are put in prior to setting the eggs. Learned the hard way! [​IMG]

    Maybe we should rewrite the 12 days of Christmas!

    We know his true love gave him BO's in a pear tree or may it is an Rcom on the first day, or so we hope.
