    I swore I wouldnt get re-involved in it until we moved from our city house. Now you all are getting me interested again. Cyn, you're the worst enabler of all.

    Of course I could direct my computer elsewhere - - naaaaaah!

    Common, you know you want to hatch! Then you can also spend more time and money getting a surefire 6p flashlight and candling them in the bator!!

    I like Cynthia's hatching threads, too. [​IMG]

    I've also got the itch, but I want to put it off until Spring, just so the babies won't have to fight the cold so much. Still, it's a rough battle!

  7. Hi David! I hope you're not moving far [​IMG]

    If it'll help scratch that itch, you're welcome to pick up some eggs to hatch.
    Hehehe, got some Naked Neck and Frizzle and Silkie eggs for you. Or I could save you some boring ol' Barred Rock eggs.

    Well, thats the deal, Lisa. We had to put the whole move off for a season - dang!

    SO naturally, I got to thinking, "Well, if were not leaving right now...."

    Silkies! Naked Necks!! Ahhhhhh, run for your life... but thanks!
  9. I understand that! I've found a great space out of Windsor, but Tom isn't 'into it' and the thought of moving the gardens and all the critters just makes my head ache.
    Oh, if you can find some Jersey Giant, Light Brahma, or Cornish hatching eggs, I'll buy the chicks [​IMG]
    Or Royal Palm turkeys or Muscovy ducks or emu or ...

    AHHHH..I am going through the same thing. And I have small coops and REALLY dont want to build anymore on my teeny tiny farm. But I cant stop thinking about all the ones I still want to hatch.

    This could be bad. If I have a hen go brody again in the spring, I dont know if I am going to be able to handle it.
