    I know right???? Dec, Jan, Feb, & now March for me - & tonight I will be cleaning out a bator I was just given tonight & the one I just used to move my eggs over to & then to add my quail eggs. The other bator will be for when I get enough eggs from my Cayugas-one finally started laying again!!!!
    Nice!! yeah March Madness for sure all around - I have now been dubbed the bird lady - I even have people(not chicken people like us) looking up different breeds because they are so interested by what I talk about!!! [​IMG]
    OOO crested cream legbars [​IMG]love crested creatures! For the Easter hatch I think I will do my Cayugas - I have only ever hatched out one batch of them before & all the fertile eggs hatched & adorable babies were peeping all about! Also will be my first Easter hatch-a-long where to even begin w/ that soooo many posts already & haven't even set eggs for it yet!!!!
    Welcome back to the addiction! Wonderful possibilities there! GL with the batch n hatch!! Can't wait to see what you end up with for breeds -
    haha "Come on birdy birdy birdy come sit on this wonderfully comfortable egg bed...It takes a while to break in, but give it 19-22 days & it will transform into a soft musical moving bed!!"
    I cannot wait to get a broody in the bunch!

    Welcome to your new addiction! I love when there are crosses or ee ones - so fun to see what you'll end up with & even then you'll still be surprised @ the changes as they grow!! love it!
