    I had a dream last night that I hatched the *weirdest* looking little chicken. It was on day 18 and the shell had cracked. I decided to end it and opened the egg to find a fully dried chick inside just a peeping away..ODD! I must be getting excited for my hatch!

    So that leads me to:
    What is the most unique thing you have hatched?
    Snakes, parrots, turtles, crains (a little far fetched but thought it would be awesome!)?

    For me its my peafowl. Dont know how well they are doing
    On day 20 nice heavy and most importantly not stinking!! (knock on wood [​IMG])

    What have you hatched??
    Pictures are always a plus!!

    For me it would be geese. This is my first time to hatch anything. Hopefully by this time next year I can have a better answer. [​IMG]

    I have 7 Chukar Partridge eggs in the bator now. Have no clue if they will hatch or when. Silly me forgot to write down the day I put them in the bator lol.

    I have never actually hatched eggs but I did have a dream that I hatched my great nephew out of an egg. I have some really strange dreams. lol

    I've hatched geese, parrots, songbirds, and pigeons and doves. [​IMG]
    I'm interested in getting into birds of prey, as well as corvids and larger parrots. It's a pretty serious hobby that I expect will grow into some sort of wildlife rehabilitation effort.
