    I bought an incubator last week, had it running for like 5 days now. I bought 1 dozen rhode island red eggs from a local, then bought 17 more mixed eggs from another local, now I have all in my incubator, plus I just bought 11 silkie eggs in the Crazy Auction Thread, which means I have to go by another incubator to use as a hatcher, since my eggs today will be in a different schedule than the Silkie eggs! I'm outta control! [​IMG] Why didn't somebody warn me this was a serious addiction!!!! Hubby is gonna kill me before these babies hatch! LOL! [​IMG]

    Thats true tracy, and right now you are my enabler, since I just bought the Silkie eggs from you! LOL. But I'm loving every minute of it, especially because I work from home managing a self storage facility, so now I finally have something to do all day while I'm sitting around waiting for customers! Also hubby is happy that this makes me so happy, he knows that ever since we got this job I have been bored out of my mind! I proudly welcome you enablers, but Shhhh..... don't tell hubby. LOL

    Boy are you in the wrong meeting. you thought this was chick hatcher's anonymous?
    no, no, no, that was the third website on the right. you must have typed in the wrong url........

    your like an alcoholic walking into a bar full of alcoholics and trying the 12 step program while sitting at the bar with a glass of beer in your hand....



    Is there a 12 step program for chicks?!
