    Well, somewhere between now and setting for the Easter hatchalong, quite a few of us have eggs that will be hatching!! :jumpy
    So, why not join our 'mellow, kick-back band of hatching pals for a little encouragement, anecdote telling, and camaraderie for the blustery month of March!
    :frow

    Hello again! Didn't we just meet up on the egg isle (feb hatchalong)? Lol.
    I guess I qualify for this thread since the 1st chick got around to hatching the 1st day of March :)
    Still no clues about the rest of them but Mima is unmovable on that nest so March...let's see what's in store!

    Awesome! Haha! Well, one thing is for sure, you will have some great stories to tell about this hatch - ones I'm sure will encourage other folks who have "unusual" broody situations!

    I have some eggs in to hatch around the 19th, fingers crossed. OE Mutts, Icelandics and perhaps a Rose-combed RIR or two.

    So great! Rose combed RIR - I'd love to hear a little about the genetics for that - very cool! I think Icelandics are stunning! :yiipchick

    That sounds like a fascinating combination to hatch! What is a "self-blue"? Thanks.

    Howdy again! I'm so glad I know so many people from February. I had a feeling you'd said you were putting the 25 in next. Did you set them yet?
