    i decided about a month ago i wasnt going to hatch any more eggs untill it warms up again. maybe march or so. .... so i loaded up the incubator about a hour ago. i just cant hold out. i got some eggs from a lady in the next town over (she responded to a want ad i put on freecyckle.) and i put 7 of my barred rock eggs in. she said her roosters are a rir and a rir dominic mix. her hens are Tetra Tint and New Hampshire Reds. i got 18 eggs from her. who else is with me?

    Oh, those are very pretty! I had to walk away from the computer earlier today to keep myself from bidding on any more eggs. Must get through current hatch BEFORE buying more eggs. So addicting!!

    I was suppose to wait until spring but I couldn't wait and this nice lady offered free eggs so there they go. Lol if they all hatch I will have way to many.

    I, too, was certain I was going to wait till at least after February before setting more eggs.

    Well, I just returned from the post office after picking up 2 doz eggs (and I have another 2 doz on the way).

    Willpower . . . Ughhhhh. [​IMG]

    I wasn't supposed to put any eggs in the bator, but guess what I did this morning. [​IMG] I couldn't resist hatching a dozen of my girls' eggs. 9 RIR and 3 BA/RIR mix.
