    sounds great WV. congrats.

    so I have set a goal, for myself.

    I'd like to start incubating some eggs, the first of the year.

    provided I can find some eggs. Think I'll try to stick with RIR's, and Barred Rocks and or some white leghorn.

    dang, fertile eggs are expensive!!

    one place listed 7 eggs for $42 does that sound right?

    another place was 10 eggs for $37

    Often, the better the stock, the pricier the eggs. Plus, plan on less than half hatching,

    I believe in getting the best stock you can to start with.

    I'll probably try to vent sex them this evening or tomorrow. I love the spotted feet too. I think that one would have made it if I hadn't assisted, but I'm still glad I did.

    x2 Good stock is expensive. If they are cheap, they are likely sub-par stock (unless the person just doesn't know what they have)
