Here's my hatching/chick schedule for this month. 10th -- 22 eggs due to hatch from a local source 14th -- About a dozen eggs due to hatch from counselor and my own eggs 15th -- picking up 25 buff orpington day old pullets from a local "hatchery" 25th -- 17 eggs due to hatch from my birds This is the first time I've ever worried about TOO many eggs hatching! And for once, I can't blame it on anyone else. These are all mine. I can't even tell hubby "Well, they're my aunts eggs, I don't have to worry about taking care of the chicks." Er...not this time!
