Well, it was predicted when I signed up with you people that it was just a matter of time until I would be hatching. This afternoon I pick up eggs from a local fellow. 3 dozen eggs that are an assortment of RIR and BR ( a month ago I did not know what those letters stood for) all are pure bread. The bator has been on since yesterday. I got a little overwhelmed trying to decide what bator was the best choice- so I went to our local extension agent and got one of his. I figure if the school teachers have good success, its a good place to start. I hope you are proud of yourself! My husband had suspected that he was living on a funny farm, now he is sure of it. Did I mention that my 23 EE's are not even out of the booder box yet?
