The roos (cockrels) are putting on their "moves" for the ladies. If I were a pullet, I'd be impressed!

Anyway, I just purchased a Brinsae inculbator, and would love to practice with some of my own eggs (eventually, I'd love to buy REALLY NICE quality eggs to hatch some high quality birds, but I think I need to practice hatching on something that costs less than $20/dozen - I'm pretty sure there is a learning curve, here!)...but my EE pullets are not yet laying.

Once they start to lay, how long until I can try and hatch some of my own?

Here are a couple of photos from a few weeks back - the boys are quite handsome!!!
