    And it never ends! Good luck w/ your new addiction and unfortunately you're in company w/ 9000 enablers.

    The nicest people walk are here to walk you through your first hatch, give advice on what not to do, and then try to sell you more eggs when you're done. And you know what? You buy them and start all over again.

    I'm just starting my hatch tonight and I was thinking I need some more barred rock hens so I can breed them to my buff orp. roo and get some sex links...

    But, you know, I'd like to have some Cochins, too...

    And the turner I'm getting on Friday will hold 47 eggs so I can get a dozen of BR, then a dozen of cochins, and OH, maybe ... [​IMG]

    Oh, sorry. Were you looking for help?

    Yup - I have the same problem. I started w/ silkies and I heard about frizzles and their in the incubator, then I found some sultans and they're coming in the mail and then I heard about sizzles and am trying to find those, then I bought a new incubator and since it was empty I needed eggs and a wonderful person sold me some silver sebright eggs and now I have another order of silkies and polish eggs on the way as well.

    Can you see where this is going........

    I'm there too- had duck eggs from my own ducks, so bought an incubator 3 weeks ago, then bought and traded some more eggs and they are in there, but had too many eggs, so bought a 2nd bator, but had so much extra space in it, that I bought more eggs, now have to either buy another bator, and wait til the 1st ones hatch, cause more eggs are coming in 1 1/2 weeks. Agh-does it end somewhere? It feels just like an uncontrollable addiction/obsession...whatever! I personally love the feeling though! Its so egg-citing!
