    Hi everyone. I am a new member but not new at all to chickens.
    My family has had chickens ever since I can remember.
    Was talking to a friend the other day an he was telling me
    about this site so I decided to sign up and see what it was all
    about.
    Oh, I'm also a hatchaholic. I probably need help but I just
    don't know how to stop incubating and hatching. As long as it
    does not lead me to a divorce I will be okay though.
    Wishing everyone a great beginning to a new week.

    HEY! welcome to BYC.
    I am afraid I have not seen a 12 step program for hatchaholics on here... they will only feed your need.

    I will never, ever, ever get an incubator. I hope if I never start then I won't have a problem...but I have a bunch of broodies... and room... and .. .OH! Get away from me it's contagious! [​IMG]

    There are many hatchaholics here and for those of us who aren't, they keep trying to lure us over! [​IMG]

    Hey yall! [​IMG]
    I am so happy to have found this place too! Thanks to all of the member's experience and support just had my first hatch of Silkies in my homemade incubator! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And I got it bad too, I set 13 eggs from my own flock 4 days ago, and now building a new bator because there are certain breeds I just gotta have. And lets include the 3 brooders I have going, one outside intermediate nursery, as well as the grown flock!! [​IMG]

    Not sure where you are, but no one around me has any chickens..and most look at me as if I have lost my mind!! [​IMG]

    Welcome!! I find this board as much of an addiction as the chickens!! [​IMG]
