    Haha! I have 15 chicks right now, more hatching, and just cleaned the incubator only to pack more

    eggs in it! [​IMG] I use little giants too. Not the best in my opinion, but it works, and actually gives me

    good hatch rates - as long as it's in a temp. stable room [​IMG]


    Happy Hatching!

    I sell a lot of them and it helps me buy chick feed for the ones I do keep. I keep a couple of the females so I can add to my flock more eggs the better. I also sell eggs.

    My hubby is an enabler. Not only did he ride with me to pick up fertile eggs once my silkie went broody, he got me a roo today so I will have my own next time I get a broody. [​IMG] And I have 5 ducks, only want 3 so would really like to sell 2, but he keeps talking me out of it.

    LOL My hubby watches from afar and I guess enables me as well. Every time he's planning a trip home, he starts in with "what do we have to do in the chicken pen/coop while I'm home?" Poor guy is home on average of 4 days a month and 2 or 3 of those days i'm workin his butt off in the chicken pen!! Next weeks visit we'll be putting the roof on the run finally and redoing the interior of the coop.

    I wish mine was an enabler lol,

    My old man softly complains about how much they eat ......and about how LOUD they get lol........I like all the chirping.

    I do all the coop details though and I build them and the brooders my self. He grew up on a farm and says he hated it.
