    Hey-that's a good idea!! Hatch and raise my own turkeys for Thanks giving and Christmas! (the possibilities are endless) Those rays are at it again.

    I have had chooks since '02 and have always maintained that I have NO interest in hatching eggs. And then the other day when I was in Orscheln, I caught myself looking at the incubators. [​IMG]

    Ok, I gotta ask, since another caught the hatch bug. Is hatching eggs all that difficult, and is it easier to get eggs to hatch through the mail, or live chicks? How much do eggs for hatching cost on average, for BOs or Wyandottes, or BRs? Can a home incubator be set up fairly cheaply? I've already spent a bunch of money on a new coop big enough for about thirty chickens....
  10. Just repeat this sentence and you will be O.K.

    Hello, my name is (your name here) and I am a Hatch-A-Holic.

    Denial is only a part of the disease, we are here to help you break through this denial and really get to hatching !!!
