    Ooh, sounds like fun! Can I join you? Chickens would need to be set on the 7th, right? This year will be our first attempt at incubating!!

    Awesome! :jumpy

    Of course! What breeds might you hatch? Incubating is addicting! Chickens take 21 days, so you'd set them on the 8th to hatch on leap year. :)

    I can never seem to get my chickens to hatch on the day they are supposed to, but I'll try!!! To hatch on the 29th, wouldn't we set on the 8th?

    I would definatly hatch! But I will have eggs hatching on the set date...would it be possible to still set then. Would high humidity for a couple of days be fine for the eggs? I am guessing it would be ok...[​IMG]

    I'd love to join.... But the eggs I currently have going are only four days old, so I won't have a clear bator in time. :hit



    Good luck to everyone who will be setting! :thumbsup
