    At the very first hatch, chick love will begin, and it's an addiction after that.

    My bad temptation is staggering a hatch! I have 7 that will be all!!! 3 LO, one BA, 1coocoo maran, one blue isbar, and an olive egger....in my crock pot.




    My current goofball hatch I have been telling people about is not fully true...[​IMG]
    I said they were due the 16, and 20th, but actually I think 3 are due the 13th, 2 the 14th, 2 the 16th, and the rest the 20th, but one more the 21st... grr my badness.

    A second incubator to use as a hatcher would solve that problem :D

    Howfunky- I have dozens of home made incubators, I just wanted to only fire up the one....I do have a husband that also lives here, it is easier fire'n up one than having to explain.

    Lol!

    I have a husband that lives here too, and no need to explain- he already knows what's about to happen when I get them out :p J/k, he doesn't even care (and loves the little babies, I'm a lucky girl).

    Now, if I had dozens of homemade 'bators, I'd probably be in trouble :oops:

    The only one I don't know about is the above incubator. All have worked wonderfully, but I like to experiment making them.
