    As you know, Mercy's eggs were dead. So I cleaned up the bator and put it away.

    Tonight DH helped me candle my other broody's eggs. We didn't see anything, so we brought one in the house and cracked it open. Don't think they are good either, but I have six more eggs to set under her.

    I was getting ready to go out to the coop to make the switch when DH asked me where my bator was, so I told him and asked why?

    He said let's set some eggs in bator! [​IMG]

    He's now carefully monitoring the temp. on the bator and walking around with the instruction manual in his hand, mumbling things about humidity. [​IMG]

    What have you done with my chicken hating husband????? [​IMG]

    Quote:Oh my heavens, YOUR husband, too??? I mean, we don't have roos or anything, but once my own DH saw Gryeyes' brooder full of little lovelies, he started shopping for a bator. I got him a small one for Christmas, and we couldn't even wait until the weekend to get some fertile eggs. We went to Trader Joe's yesterday or the day before and set them... I am not sure anymore, been working a lot & the days are starting to run together.

    We laugh about this whole bloody thing being Linda's fault.

    Wait, it gets even better!

    I went out to get the broody's remaining eggs and DH once again stopped me.

    He wants me to wait until the morning to give "his" bator time to adjust and then he wants me to set fresh eggs straight from the coop.

    I don't know whether to [​IMG] or [​IMG]

    Honey, ya gotta just laugh it off.

    Besides, in our case this is kinda nice because now we have a hobby we both like. I could totally do without getting into hatching just yet, but he's determined so why fight it?

    That old saying, "If ya can't beat 'em, join 'em" is actually the secret to a long and happy marriage. [​IMG]

    Quote:Oh how I wish the silkies eggs were big enough to set in the bator, but they only started laying a couple weeks ago. I'd love to have a few more of the little aliens running around. [​IMG]
