    You enablers should be ashamed of yourselves,you know who you are [​IMG]

    I'm with you!
    DH said we're on a tight budget, so I've been volunteering to test hatch ANYTHING!

    Must have soft chickliness to soothe my soul....

    There are a lot of enablers here. I have 24 eggs in the bator now. [​IMG] I need to get away from BYC but how do you do it. If I'm not on here everyday I go through withdraw. My hands start to shake I get head aches and I need two pots of coffee to get me through the day. What am I saying, I can never make it through a day without being on here. It's a good thing my DH got me a dishwasher for Christmas and a lot of meals go in the crockpot [​IMG]

    Yah, blame it on us you crazy hatch-a-holic, LOL !!!!

  5. We couldn't hatch more even if we wanted to. I always get so attatched to the boys and I can never let go of them. That's why our roo to hen ratio is 3:10! We're ordering 8 day-old girls in Feb to even 'em out. [​IMG] That's all the mommying I'll allow myself to handle for a while.

    so the bator has been running steady since i plugged it in so i was going to start saving up one of my hens eggs. I have done a big hatch already with
    RIRxBSL and got five little black cuties. So this time i was going to try and see if i could find the mother a our dearly missed Peach. since i Know my RIRxBR is not it (RIRxBR=BSL).

    I was going to do a big RIR roo x BR mix hen to see if it is some recessive gene or something because two hatches ago i hatched the most sweetest hen we have ever had but she sadly died at 5.5 months old [​IMG]. but the thing that made her special was that all of her brothers and sisters where black but she was RIR golden color .

    Wish me Luck

    now does anyone have tips on hatching eggs without your parents knowing ?

    Quote:First of all I would have never tried to do anything like that without telling my parents. They will always find out. Maybe if you ask them they will let you do it.

    Second why are you trying to do it without them knowing?

    they never said i could not hatch them they just said wait until spring

    January almost February is spring in my book [​IMG]

    and I was going to tell them after I gathered the eggs and put them in the bator and they were on day five or so. [​IMG]
