I must be nuts. I've got 6 turkeys, 5 ducklings, and 6 chicks about 2 weeks old.

This will be it for the year, though. It is sort of addicting to hatch things.

I'm new here...waiting on 6 chicks to arrive. But I already have 7 Button Quail. And I have to agree, once you start hatching things you just can't stop.

Yeah its addicting, you just have to find the minimum excuse to hatch even more, I have 48 eggs in the incubator right now, and I'm already thinking on what I'll be putting in as soon as I have the incubator free!!!

Quote:See how they sneek up on you...so easy to "forget" about those ones in the basement, or garage, or diningroom (who needs that room anyway). I limit myself by refusing to get an incubator but I betcha that one finds it way onto my Christmas List!

Buttons Are Addicting ... Very Addiciting! LOL

I have a pair of buttons and I started saving eggs until I had 6 then I started incubating them. They were due to hatch yesterday, but didn't. But they are still trying to hatch.
Six days ago I started saving eggs again so I had 6 eggs the day the first batch of egg were suppost to hatch, so I stuck those in the bator + 8 Chicken Eggs.
Now ... Tell me I'm Not Addicted to Buttons! ( And even if you do tell me, I won't believe you! LOL Ha ha!
)

Now I have 30 butler bobwhites in the bator... And he's still saying no more! I'm such a bad wife...
