    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.

    Once you see those tiny little fuzzy butts running around you will be in deeper than you ever thought possible. [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]

    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! [​IMG]

    Buttons Are Addicting ... Very Addiciting! LOL [​IMG]
    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. [​IMG] Now ... Tell me I'm Not Addicted to Buttons! ( And even if you do tell me, I won't believe you! LOL Ha ha! [​IMG] [​IMG] )

Now I have 30 butler bobwhites in the bator... And he's still saying no more! I'm such a bad wife... (of course I talk him into it before buying, I couldn't go around his back, I'd feel too guilty)
