I've been stalking the boards for quite some time now. I love reading these boards. I got into chickens this past spring and now have the hatching bug....luckily I got a Hovabator for Christmas..and I bought my youngest daughter a Brinsea Mini as well so we can do this together. I have eggs from my own hens and some on the way. I'm quite giddy excited...it's almost not right. I do have a question for the hatchaholics here...and this may sound ridiculous, but those of you that hatch all year long what do you do with all the babies? Do you keep them, sell them, eat them or just a little of all? I hope that doesn't sound stupid..haha, but I'm planning to do a little of all. Anyway I'm joining the ranks of the insane poultry people and I'm not looking back. I say poultry cause I'm not limiting myself (and I want ducks i spring). My kiddos already think I have a problem...luckily my youngest daughter enjoys it just like I do...she's an enabler. Oh and I got my first blue egg today from one of my eggers and it was one of the best surprises. ) I just keep looking at it...like it's a diamond but better...sheesh forget diamonds...just give me colored eggs.
