    You ALWAYS have room. [​IMG] I'm an enabler, aren't I? And yes, I want to hatch too. I'm trying to hold off 1 more month.

    I'm right there with you! I pulled the plug on the incubator a few months ago, thinking I wouldn't be hatching any eggs til spring. I guess spring came early this year as I set 17 turkey eggs on Dec 26. I'm looking forward to cute little fuzzies! Good luck with your will power!

    Well I'm gonna be a big wet blanket (aka the voice of reason). Give that clutch a few more days and that will hold you till you decide to incubate. I think incubating eggs would be so cool (and nerve racking)... Take five deep breaths...Now step away from the catalog...

    I got the catalog too and the itch. Just glad I lost my credit card and had to order a new one....it wont be here for 7-10 more days. Hopefully I can find some itch cream to fix this itch before that card gets here! [​IMG]

    Yah, I'm having withdrawals too, why do you think I am surfing this section of BYC [​IMG]. I know someone on here has the "12 Steps" for chickaholism. Maybe you could as their help....

    Sunny side up :)
    I know, I got mine too but I already placed an order last month for March lol! I got a bunch of hens for general laying purpose like rir, ameracauna/EE, barred rocks, speckled sussex, silver laced wyandottes etc. Then I got a few different things like buff laced polish, blue polish etc. just to round out the minimum# that I needed. All this was before I started incubating eggs lol. Now I have a bunch of BBS Marans and BBS Ameracauna chicks that just hatched and 41 more eggs in the bater.. Umm I wonder how many chickens I will have after all this?
