    I have just bought an incubator and have 12 eggs arriving tomorrow. I am really excited which I find quite surprising. I have never read any hatching posts cos I never thought I would be doing this...........now I am reading them all in a frantic attempt to make myself feel confident!!
    I feel the weight of responsibility all of a sudden - I have had chickens for years and am fine at keeping them alive but it is scary to think there will be 12 possible creatures that will be relying on me for life. Wow! Fingers crossed they will be ok. [​IMG]

    Good luck and enjoy. Be warned tho, this is VERY addictive. While there is alot of support for the hatching part, so far we've not found any support groups for Hatchers Anonomous.

    PS. I'm on my 3rd batch in 1 month.... they are soooooo cute!!!!!!
