    I went broody a while back and have been hatching eggs in batches this week. Today started the hatch with the eggs I set when Cyn sent me some of Nutmeg's lovely eggs.

    When I said I went broody I really meant I went BROODY.

    I got a new 'bator! So did a few someone else's around here. I wonder who??!

    I set 17 appleyard duck eggs from my ducks (woot!).

    5 goose eggs, 1 mutt egg from my geese and 4 colored sebbie eggs from a wonderful BYC member.

    I'll be adding more eggs as the days go by.

    [​IMG] Congratulations! A nice cabinet incubator is what you get when a 1588 just won't accommodate your broodiness anymore!

    How many does it hold?

    You can put in different batches at different times?

    This egg hatching "thing" is addictive.
