    Woo whoo!

    Need to keep in mind that eggs laid in one environment may be more able to hatch in it as eggs will be optimized for it, so added advantage to home grown eggs. Even changing elevation/ oxygen levels changes gene expression in developing embryos and influence ability to hatch.

    Bit like a broody is able to optimize her incubation despite external environment.

    Indeed my favorite mad scientist.

    The eggs went into lockdown last night. They are pipping this morning.

    I am off to the bator house to see what's up.

    Its a shame I can't post pics from here.

    One of our nannies has a cross dressing gay brother who works as a beautician.

    "She" is giving me a pedicure.

    Its part of my beauty regimen.

    Homosexuality and self expression is much more tolerated in Southeast Asia than it is in the west.

    Hahaha, I vote most random post on this entire forum lol.

    My mental picture of last night is something along the lines of you telling Bernie to leave the 'bator and go to bed, then he sneaks back out to find you still in there bent over a window with a great big smile on your face and talking to pips, zip's and wet chicks hahahahaha

    Great to hear it was timed for you to be there for the hatch of your first homegrown chicks.

    Lol Ben.

    I try to give a picture of my world here. And my feet feel extra special now.

    Off to the bator house for a peek.

    Come on chicks!!!

    No.

    He knows who and what he is and in this country he is allowed to be who and what he is. If given the opportunity he would have rather been born a hen rather than rooster.

    The common term here is a ladyboy.
