    Welcome to a new World of addiction. [​IMG]
     
  9. Back in June I injured my left knee and couldn't work so to keep busy I bought a bator at TSC. I started with 10 adults so I put only six eggs in and now have a total of 43 adults and chicks. Have fun but watch out for that chicken math, it'll get you before you know it.[​IMG]
