    Yes, she's my only adult hen. So go round up your egg(s) and pop 'em under a broody hen, and we will have our very own New Years Pea hatch-a-long [​IMG]

    Trip #2 to the storage locker today: pick up incubator. Now it's equilibrating, the eggs are warming up to house temperature, and I'm still shaking my head. It snowed on Saturday.

    Oh well, enjoy your omelet [​IMG]

    I can't guarantee mine haven't been breeding... all three males are stamping around like crazy, waving their tail feathers and yelling their fool heads off. It's the weather here, I'm convinced of it. It has just been crazy.... warm, then COLD, then warm, then cool, then warm, then snow Saturday, then warm, now more snow on the way. Poor birds are all mixed up, and all three boys have their trains in and at least two of them are yodeling.

    Of course, as chilled as the eggs got, even if they were fertile, they may not be viable. But I will stick them in the incubator and see in 10 days [​IMG] Wouldn't that be a hoot?
