    I've got the post holidays blues. DH spent New Years in New York with his sister and I miss him. I have PMS,coming down with a cold, and have spent all day pouting and feeling sorry for myself. Doesn't help its been raining here for days.[​IMG] So, whats a girl to do? Eat some chocolate and crank up the incubator again.[​IMG] I put in 4 of my araucana eggs and 3 serama eggs. I'm really just curious if anything is fertile. I really shouldn't be doing this, I already have 2 little cockerels that I need to find homes for. Oh well, no one was here to stop me.

    Of course, if you were looking for a therapy group to keep you from continuing this type of behaviour, you have come to the wrong place! [​IMG]

  5. And, it sure is nice:) One peeping, 2 pipped and 32 to go ALL this month, a 39 oz very large can of Almond Roca on the table next to the computer from my dsil and the 'bater 10 feet away, latte's for the 26 below zero weather and in the meantime I think I'll clean my large aquariums so I can turn on the lights in the evening and pretend I'm in Hawaii...

    I've never hatched eggs myself. I'm feeling very (VERY) tempted to borrow my parent's incubator and try. I have two little Buttercup eggs in the kitchen that just keep calling to me... The last two days I have gathered them. I look at them and turn them and keep thinking... I don't know. I might make a omelet. Might get a bator.

    I've had my Buttercups separated for about 5 weeks now. Would they be guaranteed pure if I chose to make the world a better place?


    If the hubby knew you bought the incubator, buying the eggs are implied consent. Obviously, you don't use an incubator for other uses. He already knows that what you wanted to do. Therefore he has already agreed to buy eggs too.

    We aren't enablers. We just push for the healthy pursuance of a hobby! Psychologists do it all the time.

    I don't have a hubby. I don't have anyone saying no you can't do it. Think of the "id" running on full throttle! That's why I come to a board of experts (BYC) to get advice...

    Boy, I'm in trouble!

    Quote:So very true!!!! The thing is I told him I wanted to incubate eggs from my chickens trouble is I am not getting the eggs yet to do it [​IMG] and he knows that I am ordering chicks for early Feb delivery (25 of them), now with the eggs I bought I should get 50 chicks or so? [​IMG]
    he already thinks I am nuts!!!
