Thanks

    Okay, Okay, I see I am among kindred souls that are used to getting our own ways! I will set chicken eggs this weekend so they will hatch (see how positive I'm thinking?) the same day as ya'lls poults. Oh, and as for the straightjacket.......I'll take an XL in Houndstooth, please. [​IMG] I have quite a collection of chicken books with pretty pictures and pretty general information (more the coffee table variety.) I will find a nicer one and offer it as a prize for one of the contests.

    Oh, dear Lord, here we go again!

    Deb, I always like to get PM's, especially from you!

    This could definitely be done!

    This will kind'a be the third time as my son took the bator to school and tried 2 dozen just before Mahonri's hatch. It was also an epic fail (NO chicks) but they taped up all the vent holes and I thought that was the only reason for the bad hatch. It was hard to tell my tenderhearted boy that it was probably what he did that caused them not to hatch. Now, I'm not sure that it was.

    So yes! Third time's the charm!
