    I finally got my eggs into an incubator! A good friend of ours that lives just down the road from us is incubating my eggs for me. [​IMG] I might be able to talk someone into getting me one now, if I don't manage to get an incubator on my own. [​IMG] Even though I don't get to hatch them myself, I'm still super happy. He had room for a whole dozen and guess what? I had a whole dozen. [​IMG] I'm just really, really happy. When those hatch I can take more to him. He doesn't expect anything in return and he told my dad as much. Most likely we'll end up giving him chicks. I guess this is his way of paying my dad back for all the things he's done for him over the years.... and the fact that we gave him a roo once. We found out today that a coyote got the roo. He knows we'll give him another if he wants. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's the point. I'm already addicted to chickens. Why not take it a step further so I can force my dad to build the new pen? [​IMG] I already have him convinced that we need a brooder so we can cut down on chick death. Since he saw our friend's incubator I think he might be easily swayed in that direction now. [​IMG] I want to buy my own though. Me and my dad are always arguing over who's chickens they are. [​IMG]
