    I am so eggcited!

    I got one of those tiny plastic incubators with no thermostat that have a little 7w light bulb and they look like a UFO. Its new, free shipping, with 6 fertile quail eggs, for only $23. I know these are marginal but when I was a kid i was hatching chicks 3 and 4 at a time as long as I kept this bator in an inside room with a constant air temperature (my basement.)

    I will play with this, and end up getting a little giant later (available for $34 at my local TSC.)

    I want to buy 3 eggs from someone here but I think I need more posts before I start looking.

    Well the quail eggs first.

    I am looking for 3 Pekin Ducks (I live in Pekin) or 3 - 4 reds, barred rock, or any good layer.

    Another possibility would be 6 fancy bantams or tumbler pigeons.

    At this point I'm pretty well up for anything, even some Cornish x but I would be eating these so no pet eggs please !

    The fun of the hatch is what I am after now. I have yuppie friends in bloomington who want byc so I can place layers easily.
