    Quote:Just a regular old Hovabator from the feed store. It holds about 40 chicken eggs, but that's good because if I hatched as many as I wanted, I'd have to move and let the chickens have the house [​IMG] hatching is addictive!!

    Quote:Agreed, but be careful. This calculator can be very addictive.

    Are the parents purebred? If so, we can probably give you an idea on what to expect. Or you can post pictures and we can have some fun guessing but, if the parents are crosses, it can be very difficult to predict.
