I just went through my first time hatching chicks. It was an amazing thing to watch. Through out the incubation, DH acted like he wasn't very interested although I would catch him "lurking" over the incubator every now and again. He did watch some of them come out of the eggs and thought it was neat to see them hatch. I started collecting eggs this week for another BYC'er who lives close to us so she can hatch some chicks. Last night DH says "we need to do a St. Patty's Day hatch (his birthday)" He bowled me over with that! He knows I am planning on doing an Easter hatch but he wants chicks for his birthday? So I sat down and figured out the dates and there is plenty of time between hatches to get the incubator cleaned up and ready for the Easter hatch. Anyone else have a "reluctant" spouse who is coming over to the dark side?
