Okay, so I ordered eggs to put under a broody hen. The egg sender was really on the ball and sent them out a lot faster than I thought they would. Yay for that, but being the dork that I am I decided to order extra eggs and incubate them. After a great deal of anguish and research, I ordered an Hovabator 1588, thinking it would ship out on Monday. I had it sent priority so theoretically it would have been here today or tomorrow. Plenty of time in my perfect little world to get it set up and ready for the eggs that wouldn't arrive until Friday. Umm hmm. So the eggs are here. The incubator hasn't left the warehouse yet and I'm not sure what to do. Options: - Put half a dozen eggs under the broody hen and just hang on to the others until next week when the incubator gets here. Doesn't seem like a good plan for the eggs just sitting on the cabinet though. - Put half a dozen under the broody and go out an buy a Hovabator 1602 from the local co-op. Cancel the 1588 order and just deal with the crappier incubator. - Put all the eggs under the broody and hope she can pull it off (even though these little silkies usually do good to cover 7-8 eggs and I have a total of 16 eggs on my cabinet right now) - Put half a dozen eggs under the broody and then throw a kicking and screaming fit that includes some head/wall beating (even though it is totally my fault for dreaming up this wacked idea in the first place.) Any thoughts from the masses?
