    Hey - Fellow BYCers!

    Just a quick story about a coupla chicken addicts -- I got in touch with jmhappycowboy who has an incubator, and asked him if we could make a deal-deal... I'll buy a few eggs,have them shipped to him to hatch, I'd get one pullet from the hatch, buy him some feed, and he could have all the rest to sell/keep. (I'll do ANYTHING to avoid rehoming a roo again)

    HE TOLD ME HE HAD A 400 EGG INCUBATOR!!! [​IMG] 400!

    So what is coming???

    Welllll --

    My bator (Hova-Bator 1583) has been running for quite sometime now. It is very addictive. Good news is, as you practice, you get better at it [​IMG]

    OK.. so maybe I am out of control! But I only have to take a few pullets, right? He is hatching - he can sell them... right?

    Problem is -- HE IS AN ADDICT TOO!!! Oh. MY. GAWD. 2 chicken addicts out on the streets!!!!! Oh NOOOO! so there are even MORE coming!!!!!

    At first - it was a JOKE about filling up the 400 slots - now we have to COUNT! And I don't even KNOW anything about most of what what HE has coming on his OWN!!! [​IMG]

    He apparently picked up two dozen cochin eggs from KristenH today!!!! [​IMG]
