    Start some eggs now and they will hatch Valentines weekend. I put 32 eggs in the bator today. 16 Blue & Black Rocks from Halo, 8 White & 8 Buff Orpington's from Fowl Visions. My weekend will be great! Anyone else hatching?

    Yep, putting two dozen in the bator tomorrow morning! Happy Valentines Day!
  5. Hi Reuben! I was already ranting to Tom that 'planners' were sooo inconsiderate as to schedule a big ballgame for ValentinesDay (he couldn't say for sure when the game is either, haha).
    Now you can concentrate on feetball that weekend. Or at half-time, you could darken the room, candle the eggs and and show off the embryos dancing.

    Lucky you, Kathy's eggs did GREAT for me! (you saw some blue barred Rock boys from her when you were here, I just couldn't catch them).
    I haven't tried Orpingtons, but I'm sure you'll have good luck with them, too.
    My setting day used to be Sat, but this month has been Thurs. --- just set Delawares, Am's, and Silkies the 21st.
    Good luck!

    I'm right there with ya, Reuben. I set some a couple hours ago ... so tomorrow will be day one for me, hatch due Feb 13. I have to work on Valentine's Day, so hope to have them here the day before. [​IMG] I set 30 BBS Orps from jmhappycowboy. Some of his stock originates from BamaChicken and Miss Prissy.

    Yesterday I set 26 Buckeyes from JamesA, so I am hoping for a busy hatching weekend in 3 weeks! Guess I had better stock up on the TV dinners! [​IMG]
