    One of my A&M's has started to lay, and counting her egg I'm getting up to 13 eggs A DAY!! Now, presuming I have more than ONE female out of 10 birds, I think I'm in a bit over my head!! Plus I have the 'babies' that are about a month old, don't even know how many girls and boys there are there.

    After tomorrow I'll have 1 hovabator 1583 and 1 LG......What am I going to do with all these eggs???

    Where's LRRM???? I need her pickling recipes again!! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I haven't seen her in a while now. My incubator, when empty, only holds 120 eggs. That's like 10 or 11 days at most [​IMG] I am NOT getting a cabinet bator!!

    I have enough room in my bator to set maybe 40-ish eggs, and I have fawn/ginger eggs coming from peepsnbunnies, not counting guinea eggs I'm getting, and bantam cornish eggs.....But I think I have another girl wanting to go broody, so at least I won't have to put ALL the eggs in the bator!!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks Mrs. AK!! How big of a container would you need to have for this recipe? I was thinking of making the eggs and selling them at the local auction.....by the pint [​IMG]

    And you used habaneros?? [​IMG] OMG!! Those are waaaaaaaaay too hot for me!! [​IMG]
