    I celebrated the new year at 12:00 and by 1:00 a.m. I was setting a Brand New Set of eggs in the incubator . .. .

    Did Anyone else set eggs today - - Jan 1, 2011 - - the 1st day of the New Year ? ?

    roocrazy - - I tried to set them then, but with all the New Year's Eve celebration
    - - - - I didn't get to candle them earlier in the day. So, I had to candle them first.
    - - - At least it won't be hard to remember when Lock Down is [​IMG]

    Kathy - - - I want to know what happens with those project eggs.
    How many different breeds do you have at your place ? ?
    Which is your favorite one or two breeds ?
    How do you keep up with all the chickens?
    I have to do some serious coop / pen building during the next month and just can't decide what to do.
    I am contemplating what size to make pens /coops. I contemplating how many hens I want to put in with
    my roos. Just the whole "breeding / hatching/ raising" process I am evaluating and contemplating
    before I put the first post in the ground . . . [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
