    I bought an old incubator off of ebay yesterday. I really did.

    Last night I had a dream about it.

    TuffOldHen came over and helped me make sure it was set up proper and brought me 6 black/blue orp eggs.
    SpeckledHen came over and made sure the temps were spot on and then she gave me 2 eggs to put in it.
    Then SCLanimals came over gave just 1 egg out her bator so I would have something to put in mine.
    Then Jared44M stopped by and gave me 2 speckled sussex eggs so I could figure out to make a jubilee orpington.
    Then BamaChicken came by and gave me 1 mottled orp egg because it was all she could spare right now.
    Then ScrambledEgg came and gave me 3 barred rock eggs and asked if she couldeat supper at my house.
    The TerrieLacy brought me 3 duck eggs because everybody needs some ducks.
    Then Nifty-Chicken came over because he heard it was a BYC meet up over my house.

    Then there was all these people milling around drinking coffee and baskets started filling up eggs to put in the new incubator.

    PC had a purple chicken on a leash. Marlin had buckeyes sitting on a nest in my livingroom!

    I didn't get to talk to everyone because the alarm went off for my husband to go to work and I woke up.

    This is a sickness people. Run now or the chickens (and the eggs) will assimilate you as well.

    [​IMG] That is too funny MissPrissy. I am sitting here unwinding from my 3am cow check and dreading going to bed only to wake up at 5:30 for my 6am cow check and I stumble on this! It was all I could do not to laugh myself out of this chair when I read this! We're here to support you with your addiction, MissPrissy, not to help you quit! [​IMG] Never forget that!

    I just love you to pieces!!! You are too much!!! We have to EAT those Barred Rock eggs for our supper or they would be incubating forever and waiting for a miracle hatch with no rooster, LOL! Hey, and next time I'm in your dream, have me accepting a million dollar check...then I'll come to supper at your house and bring presents, loL!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What ever it is you have must be some kind of contagous.
    One would think that after handling and raising as many chicks as I have in my life that an old coot would not be excited about some new peeps. Wrong!
    I went to bed at 10 and woke up at 2 thinking about my order that is due today or tomorrow.
    Went online to BYC. Nothing going on there. Back in bed at 3. Can't sleep. Up at 5 with cell phone in hand hoping post office will call any minute.
    Now even having thoughts about purchasing a bator and.......... blue orps, BLRW, etc Lawd help me!
    Prissy: I was starting to worry about you but now I am getting real worried about myself.

    Is there no cure for this stuff? Somebody please help us all.

    thats great MissPrissy

    my dreams include chicks having trouble hatching, I have gotten up to check on them then realized none were even due to hatch!

    I can think of worse things to dream about.

    did these folks look like themselves or their avatars in your dream!!!
