    When we got home from vacation 3 weeks ago we put some shipped eggs in the bator. My husband who had just gathered the eggs from the chickens said "lets put the eggs in the bator" I was like they won't live the temp has dropped below freezing the last few nights"(our hens won't set) but I put them in there anyway just to make him happy. Well 220 days have gone by and low and behold the first chicks to pipp.... Those eggs I thought sure had died He will never let me live this down. From now on he will always be the egg man LOL Crystal
