    I thought I was done for the year but I recieved some eggs today. Been waiting for these eggs since August, but their hens had stopped laying.

    You beat me to the draw. I will be picking my BCM eggs up Sunday and in they go. I found out last Friday that I would be getting the eggs and fired up the bator. Saturday night it was at 100 degrees and has been holding right there. I have checked it in the middle of the night, early morning and every time in between. These eggs are from of Wade Jean and Ron Presley's chickens. Most of the time I just put them in the bator and out they come, this time I am going to be on pins and needles. They should hatch on my grand daughter's birthday and she wanted them for a Christmas present. Until the eggs hatch I will be worse than a first time father. The DW is laughing at me all the time and is telling me to relax. How can you relax with the gand daughter's Christmas present in the bator. I am almost tempted to put half the eggs under a broody hen. Where is a broody silkie when you need one? GOOD LUCK with your eggs. The only thing I have going for me is, the eggs will be picked up, not shipped.

    Marans would be a very good excuse to fire up the incubator, that is if I ever turn it off! [​IMG]
