    I finally got my dad out of his house and over for Thanksgiving dinner today. I was looking on line at incubators and he said "Do you want a new one"? I said "yup" so he bought me this: Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco Incubator [​IMG]

    See, it's true! All you gotta do is feed a man and then hit him up for something while he's in that post-turkey haze! Love it![​IMG]

    Ah yes, chicken math. The exponential growth factor in chickens. One hen at six months can lay an egg a day most days. So after 6 more months, from one hen, you could have 365/2 ...182 or so chickens, half are hens so that's 91, how many more can you have in 6 months from that? Anybody got a calculator?:p

    We are certifiable!!!

    Even DH thinks hatching chicks is better than Christmas!! He check under the broody more than I do ! ANd he arranged athletic socks for the lone chick to snuggle in; he said chicks like that!

    OP congrats on the new incubator. WHat an awesome gift from your Dad. ANd how nice to have him over for THanksgiving! You know where to get eggs, see Hot 2 Pots selection of lovely hens ! Or try the BYC auctions. My incubator is full--last hatch until spring. Really,really it is.

    Happy HOlidays!
