    WOW! That is feeding the addiction. Are you going to hatch for them? What kind of eggs do they want you to set?

    Does that mean you will be breaking out the new bator and getting it fired up for a hatch?

    MY hubby truly WOULD kill me if I had 3 incubators going. He's not very happy about the one I'm getting ready to start....
