    Have fun, but keep it G rated !

    After seeing this in another thread, I figured I would give it a try. But since I am not female, I had to alter the original method. so I am wearing a brace on my knee to keep it from popping out. and since it is stretchy like elastic I am putting one of my new OEGB's e ggs behind it to hatch it. she was in with a lot of other OEGB's and several of them were roo's. all her other e ggs were fertile. so why not I am going broody.

    and my little e gg

    if she lays another e gg tomorrow I might slip it in because I could fit two or three bantam e ggs back there.




    here is where I got the Idea.

    crazychicken is going to wait and just save eggs, and start on the 6th because he has to hatch around school. lol I can see Language arts teacher now "Peep Peep" "Stop making that peeping noise". "yes mam sorry", "peep peep"" sorry"," peep" "detention to the office."

    lol when my parents find out they are going to start checking me for eggs before I walk out the door. [​IMG]

    Thinks if I can find the other leg brace I can have three on each leg and try to hatch 6 [​IMG] ,

    In my defense, and I quote “you try and hatch as many eggs as you want, she has been nowhere near a rooster for days. So go ahead and just toss some in the Bator, nothing will hatch.”

    oh dang, When I came down stairs this morning, the egg fell out and cracked on the floor. (of course it waited until I was on the hard floor and not soft carpet. ) but it was warm in the inside of the egg,so maybe. looks over at hen little hen.

    Lay an egg ! Lay an egg !Lay an egg !
