    DH has realized his wife wants to be a hatch-a-holic. Well she was a lurking one, little hatches here and there, thinking of ways to sneak more eggs. Hey sneaking them into the classroom worked too.

    Our Dialogue as I drove home from a Poultry show in Stuart Florida.

    "Honey you should be proud of me, I resisted buying these really cute splash silkies and the buff laced polish pair, and the white crested blacks."

    DH replies "Well I think you have much more FUN hatching anyways." (oh no did he admit that?)

    I glumly reply, "Well, I think I would do better with an upgraded incubator, I was talking to those ENABLERS at the show and they have much more sophisticated bators and told me it really made a difference in their hatch rate." "But I am sure that would not my my dear darling hubby happy since they do cost more" All said very pleasantly.

    DH replies "Well, lets see how your doctors appointments turn out (I am having really bad hand pain--possibly a torn tendon or nerve issues) and then we can talk about getting an upgraded incubator".

    GASP!

    GASP!

    Well I was pretty excited, but I kept my cool as I was driving on the turnpike and it wouldn't do to swerve or do anything foolish.

    Oh dear, I am afraid I have an itch now to shop and dream up some more fluffy silkie hatches. Any recommendations for upgrades?

    come on enablers...don't let me down! [​IMG]

    What is your price range? Did you give DH a "sugar pill"?

    sugar pill? ha! I think he really likes those d'uncles I just hatched for him.

    I think we are going to look at the Brinseas, I am not going to be quantity hatching so a Sportsman just would not make sense for me (unless I found a used one at a decent price). I am considering the Octogon 20, but am going to weigh in the Octogon 40 as well.

    Anyone have a polyhatch?

    Stick with the Brinsea and you will have no regrets.

    By the way. Double R supply has the sportsman size Brinsea Ova easy 380 for just over $500.00 I have two of them and love them. [​IMG]

    inuyashalover21,

    where in NC are you going and when?

    Sorry Sunchick, don't mean to hijack your thread, and
    get ready to hatch away.
    When you have the means of hatching, it's very hard to stop.

    Their shipping is pretty cheap. It was only 45.00 to ship my Ova Easy to the U.S. post office box in washington.
