    I bought the same one a couple of weeks ago, on day 4 of my first hatch. Go ahead and start it up, and Merry Christmas!

    I was about to post about awaiting the delivery of mine. I'm so impatient. I have a tracking number but it dropped off after it left Utah. I know the folks on the auction page are sick of me asking how long eggs are good for. LOL

    I'm so so eggcited. :) maybe we can be hatching buddies?

    Spring? Who needs spring?

    I bought a genesis 1588 and did my first hatch for the NYD hatch. I got a great hatch rate. This is so addictive I need a market for chicks or I could end up overrun.

    It was all I could do to wait until the Valentine's hatch. Eggs go in in four more hours, yay! [​IMG]

    lol.....yup, I guess so!! What do you plan on hatching out first? I might sell the first hatch so I can get the hang of what I'm doing before I drop serious $$ for the breeds I want.
