    I put some in a couple days ago. We can be hatching buddies. I put in 21 eggs, but some are BBS silkie/showgirls, some are F2s. I didn't mark them because I was going to hatch them myself and I can tell a silkie from a cochin when it hatches, so really don't know WHAT is in my bator, but we can still be hatch buddies.

    See now, here's my secret. I pile up hay all around myself and just hunker down really tight and stare into space. I only get up to eat and poop only one time a day. If anyone gives me so much as a glance, I hunch up like Marie LaBeau and say EEEEEEEeeeeeee!!! and lay into anyone that gets too close or tries to put their hand up under my feathers!

    There, now you know my secret. Or I could just use the hovabator, yeah, that's the ticket!

    lol.. i really am getting something in february... already made half assed arrangements with Lynne... she lives on this side of the country... lol....

    i was excited to find someone on the west coast hoping it would be better on shipping since it was closer... well luck has it that if i wait a bit.. which i had to anyway cause of molting... anyway.. i may get a pair depending on $ or i'll get hatching eggs and they will have a much safer journey than the USPS...

    *places thread back on track*

    have they hatched yet??? huh huh?? have they hatched??

    good luck guys.. hope they're all good and all gorgeous
