    Happy hatching. That's a great mix of breeds you have.

    My LG and Brinsea are both sitting idle.

    I've got 2 bators and a hatcher full, plus brooders everywhere!! I'm trying to resist using my friend's borrowed bator that needs to go back, so my son is learning just how yummy quail eggs are! [​IMG] So don't feel bad, you aren't the only crazy one! [​IMG]

    He still doesn't know about the 10 new chicks at the other house [​IMG] I've got to find a nice safe place out of sight and mind before I fire that bator up... [​IMG] I'll be cleaning out a spot in the garage this weekend [​IMG] I was told as long as I don;t bring them IN the house like last time.... they had to brood in our diningroom [​IMG]
