    I try so hard to stay away from this area of BYC because it makes me miss hatching really bad. I put a light in the coop for my hens but I'm not sure why. I know it will help them lay but my Sportsman is bein borrowed by Buster so my girls laying won't do me any good. Plus I don't have them separated into their breeding pens yet. I need something to keep my mind off hatching for 2 more months till I get my new Sportsman bator and hatcher. Since ya'll are my enablers, I thought ya'll could help me get through this. I need some ideas to keep my mind off of hatching....any ideas? [​IMG]

    Poor Buster. I think he's getting tired of me asking about my silkie eggs he's got in the sportsman for me. There was a power outage last night at Busters so I had to call his wife to see how low the temp got on the bator. Then I had to call Buster today and ask him when he's going to candle my silkie eggs. I hate watching the bator from one state away!!!!! [​IMG] When I was using my homemade bator that I gave to Buster, I would sit in front of it for hours watching my chicks hatch. House needed cleaning, Hubby and kids were starving, I was sleep deprived and animals needed tending.....but I just couldn't drag myself away from that bator door! I've got it bad! [​IMG]

    Maybe Santa could bring you a spare bator for Christmas. Just a small one to keep you busy.
