    It's awful. I have an incubator and a hatcher. And then I saw more eggs I wanted and bought another incubator that should be here this week.

    I have my own mf cochin eggs to set and have bought LF cochin eggs, wheaten marans, olive eggers, wheaten pendesencas and I have my eye on some blue wheaten ameraucanas. So that's 4 dozen ++++++. I would be in BIG trouble if I had a cabinet incubator, lol.

    Oh, and hubby is gone for valentine's day and didn't get my anything so he had this coming. [​IMG]

    I'm afraid I cannot help you. I, too, like so many of us frequenting this forum, suffer from the same addiction to hatching.

    But hey, you are in WONDERFUL company!!!

    Everybody welcome georgialee!!! [​IMG]

    I am setting duck eggs this weekend from my own runners and calls. I can't wait! I sold all the ducks from my last hatch so they were only here to greet me with their cutness for a few days. Must Have More!!!!!

    I haven't ventured into ducks yet. I'm scared if I do that I won't be able to stop. There's something about runner ducklings (and really any ducklings, if I'm honest) that is irresistable. [​IMG]

    It's all his fault. If only he had gotten you flowers and chocolates. Yeah right.. eggs and incubators are addictive.

    Quote:There is nothing cuter than a baby duckling!!!! I have 8 of my own indian runner eggs in the bator! My bator hold 123 eggs at a time. And is usually always full. Then I have a hatcher. The bator was overflowing last week, so I had to put the 85 quail eggs into the hatcher (using it as a bator) a few days early. HAHAHA [​IMG]

    The addiction only seems to get worse! I have my own breeding flocks now laying like crazy and I can't even fit all the eggs from my birds into the bator! So I came up with this smart idea to do some egg swaps here on BYC. Well darn it, I forgot that you get some eggs back too! Then I tried to sell some, give some away, eat some etc.....

    Last time I counted I have about 250 birds......shhhh don't tell hubby!
