Oh the crazy things you'll do for your kids!!! Well, we are about to dive off head first into chickens abyss. I have 6 children and 5 of them are old enough to be in 4H. We have raised goats, and rabbits for 7 years but never chickens. Well it was our 4h leaders genius idea to get hatching eggs from the University of Arkansas's poultry program. Yeah, yippee, oh crap!!!! Let's do the math. 5 kids at 20 eggs each- I'm getting 100 hatching eggs!!!! Needless to say, I'll be reading, lurking, and sweating until we get real chicks hatched. We are borrowing a friend's sportsman 1500 for the hatch. Fingers crossed. Hubby went to an auction the other day and scored a Cadillac of an incubator (from what I googled). It is a 2 drawer Hatchrite, that originally sold for around 9k. Well, I'm gonna play with it today to see if it works or if I need to call NASA to help me figure it out. Anyways, I'm here and hopefully I don't drive anyone nuts with my numerous dumb questions!
