    What only 14, you need at least 30 to be considered to have a problem. lol

    [​IMG] I have decided I am a Hatch A Holic , I have been searching for a local chapter of HAA (Hatch A Holics Anonymus) but I can't seem to locate one........
    So I am trying to keep my addiciton under control , but my exsisting chickens keep laying eggs and I keep hearing the voices, they keep saying, put them in the bator......

    LOL...I have one more egg that is about to hatch out of 12...I asked my dh tonight if he would mind me hatching more. He said he isn't bothered. He gave me his ok...and so the addiction continues.....

    30 eggs is the cut off for "problem"? Uh oh, I stuffed 50 into mine the first go 'round...then 50 the next go 'round....There's a couple dozen in there this time....[​IMG] Yeah, I've got a problem.

    And what is it with the enabling husbands? The ones that claim to "not like chickens?" Mine doesn't bat an eye when he sees me unpacking another box of eggs. He's even sent me some eBay links recently for Sportsman incubators for sale. As if I don't get myself into enough trouble with my 2 styro-bators!! I mean, if the poor dude had any sense of self-preservation he'd put an end to this now, before the chickens totally take over! [​IMG]

    Hubby took pics of an icubator we saw at a Tractor Show recently. There is a raffle for it, but he said, I could go ahead and build one like it, and if you win this one we'll have 2....[​IMG]

    Yep. 2 incubators. It all goes downhill from there!!

    I think all of the enabler-hubbies need their own support group, too. I mean, obviously they are in denial about their own chicken addictions!!

    I guess I should have made myslef clear..... we already have to Hova Bators, so if we ended up with 2Handmade Wooden ones , that had 4 large trays for eggs, each held about 40 eggs, and a hatching tray, that would be probably roughly close to 500 eggs [​IMG]

    It sounds to me like you have everything under control and you're about due to upgrade to a couple GQF Sportsmans or an OvaEasy 380. [​IMG]
