    Holy Cow! You ARE a hatchaholic! lol

    I can see where this might become addicting, though. And I'm only on my 1st now...

    You're not alone [​IMG] Just finished a hatch yesterday with 18 chicks & I have 2 more incubators with eggs in them. One has 42 eggs (EE, RIW, & Dom x) going on lockdown Saturday & the other has 7 Standard Bronze turkey eggs that were give to us. I ordered a dozen Turken eggs Monday & 3 Peafowl eggs today. Oh, I almost forgot the 3 goose eggs under a broody that are due to hatch Saturday.

    Hello, my name is Michelle & I'm a hatchaholic

    Hugo, Ok
    I think I am a "hatchaholic" too! I just finished up my first hatch & it was successful! So I am moving on and now I have a dozen guinea eggs in my bator and am adding Indian Runner and Pekin duck eggs in a few days. All are shipped eggs so I hope it's successful. I was thinking I need a second incubator... you know.... just for hatching... lol! I would probably fill that one too.
