    For some reason my memory has been really horrible lately, but I figured if I wrote down the date I put the eggs in, I could always figure out when they're going to hatch. I put in ducks, turkeys and chickens. So, I count to 25 days, thinking that's when my chickens would hatch and the turkeys and ducks would only be a few days behind (I KNOW! lol) so surprise! On day 21 I had a chick hatch out. BOY did I feel stupid when I remembered it's 18 days - where the heck did I even think it would be 25 when I know that's for turkeys and ducks?? Talk about one big brain fart. Thank god the babies are okay, lol. I have 13 of them peeping beside me right now [​IMG]

    I think I need to lay off hatching the ducks, if I've hatched so many I completely blow off when a chicken hatches [​IMG]
