    Spoken like a true addict.

    On the way to the restroom earlier today I passed a respository of boxes awaiting disposal. I found a few boxes that are about 6 inches square and have 16 slots in them... thinking they might be good for egg mailing and picked up 3 of them.

    -Another addict

    (PS I'm assuming there will be a swap near this time for those of us waiting on our sponsor for the 12 step program?)

    I'm in! I've got two bators cooking now, but they'll rest until Easter Hatch sets. I'm browsing auctions and stalking breeders now [​IMG]

    Kathyinmo, perhaps I could get some more Icelandic eggs for this hatch? Pretty please? The others are still roaming the postal service dungeons I guess. [​IMG]

    Is there going to be an egg swap this time?

    I didn't feel I could participate in the NYD swap, since I only had barnyard hatchery mixes available. This time all three of my SQ golden campines are laying. So far I've had 100% fertility with the 16 eggs I've set from them. Hatched four on NYD and currently twelve in the incubator for the Valentine's Day hatch . They are the cutest darn chicks![​IMG]
