    ok.

    so I'm not proud I did it.......

    a little bit ashamed.......

    but last night, while turning the eggs, I candled a few.

    saw moving stuff!!

    had one or two, where it looked like the yolk had gotten significant'y larger, but no veining could be seen?

    had one or two, that looked like growth, but no black dot in the center, but could see veining.

    then had some, where everything was readily apparent.

    okay, I candled all of them!!

    (hangs head in shame)

    That's the model I'm planning to order this week. I shall join you in overpopulating my yard with birds until my neighbors fear for my sanity! [​IMG]
    Good luck and enjoy the ride!

    don't do it!!!!

    I can already feel the hunger pangs, of wanting to do more and more.

    And not just chickens!!! there's ducks, geese, turkeys, guineas, quail, and peacocks!!!

    DON'T YOU SEE?!?!?!?!?!


    once it grabs hold of you, you can never escape!!!

    Dont' look to anyone on this site to help you with your addiction!! they are all enablers. They offer you free eggs, and encouragement, and even advice on how to hatch, raise, then hatch again!!! It's a never ending cycle of support, and enabling!!!


    It's too late for me, but please save yourself. I will try to hold them off as long as I can.

    Too late! I was addicted as a young child. Guess who had her bedroom filled with incubators and brooders almost year round from the age of 4? Yup, my parents addicted me. Vicious cycle, after 15 yrs birdless I finally managed to move somewhere they were allowed. Oh yeah. . . [​IMG]

    Y'all are enablers! I'm glad I found this helpful thread. But Bert is right. If you get in now you may never leave lol. I'm also on my first hatch and already planning on what else I can try hatching. I have local enablers too. My neighbor wants me to incubate her duck eggs and another local person has unlimited duck and turkey eggs for me. I'm excited...Kids are excited...hubs is not as thrilled lol. especially afraid I'll want to keep them all. Silly guy he doesn't know he promised to make me breeding A-frame which will leave more room in my coop lol.
