I've been trying to find chicks in my local area & haven't had much luck. Yesterday I impetuously bought eggs at the farmers market that I was told were fertile. Another person buying eggs from the same person told me he's been getting 10 or 11 chicks per dozen eggs. I had to stop & buy an incubator on the way home! My husband thinks I'm nuts, but this whole chicken thing was his idea... hehehehe. I wasn't planning on having mutts, but I'm sure I can sell some on craigslist or at the animal auction. Can I put in eggs with different hatching dates in the same incubator?
