    If chicks didn't have to cheep so darn loud I might have got away with it for a while longer. We've been selling the flock down and my wife had no idea the incubator was going. [​IMG] Then we woke up to this
    My wife was saying "what IS that noise?" I just looked innocent and was thinking "Shut up chick, until she leaves anyway, then I'll sneak you out to the barn."

    In a couple minutes she comes in and hollered "there's a chick in the 'bator! I thought you were gonna wait until spring to go crazy hathching again?"

    I blamed it on my son, after all... it IS his chick. After all, I don't have any bantams. [​IMG]

    Everything gets blamed on poor little me. [​IMG]
