    Here on the east coast, my day is just starting. But my son works the 10pm-6am shift, so he is just home, eaten, and is off to bed.

    As a relative newbie without any roos, I don't anticipate having any "pancakes," at least not any with any hopes of being productive.....much to the disappointment of my 5yr old neice. I gave my five siblings a half-dozen eggs each for Christmas,(mine are still as rare and exciting as gold) and my sister's daughter's reaction was priceless. Sister:"Look what Aunt L gave us for Christmas!" Neice: (looking at egg carton) "Chickies!??!" Sister: "No. Eggs." Neice: (pout) "I wanted chickies."

    Well, I'm off to check on my chickies and head off to work. Good night!

    I have no roos....
    I tried 2 weeks to break her broodiness, gave up and posted an ad on craigslist hoping someone local had some fertile eggs.
    I was amazed when someone did. I offered to trade some duck eggs or to pay for them, she just wanted duck eggs. We got there to pick them up...only to discover she had been my daughters school librarian in middle school, an awesome lady that we both really liked. She retired last year, and it's a loss for the school.
    So, got 9 eggs from her...until i got the incubator we stuck all the eggs under the hen, 1 disappeared...yeah, don't know how that happened yet.
    My teens are thrilled at the prospect of getting baby chickies again maybe...​
