    You are all enticing ME to get involved in this!!! LOL chicken math?!?! Why don't they warn you of that when you buy your first little darling peeps?!?! however, I think my husband might divorce me if I tell him I want to try hatching my own eggs! [​IMG] I thought he was gonna kill me when the 2nd bunch I got couldn't mix with the 1st... leading to him building an awesome coop and then having to close in the pavillion for a barn/coop for the others! [​IMG] I can't imagine what he'd say if I told him I wanted more.... LOL

    I have 2 Little Giant still air. Once I got the temperature set I have not had any problems with them. I have one with an egg turner and then they go to the hatcher.

    My husband is anti chicken but won't say anything because he thinks that allows him to buy whatever he wants [​IMG] That also means that he doesn't help me make anything and I am just not that ambitious. I think I am going to by myself a battery powered screw gun, then I don't have to worry about running extension cords all over the place...anyone have a good recommendation?

    I just figured it out! Ray (did anyone ever hear from him?) has BCM, and that is what I want. Once I get a broody, I can take the bike down to him, and get eggs! I know I will have to get an incubator eventually, but I only want a small one. [​IMG] Just for emergencies.
    All this talk about eggs finally got my brain working. It was that, or stop by Meyer Hatchery on my way to see my sister or mother.
    Then again, Ray, Sally, and Chad aren't to far out of the way for my Jersey relatives that could bring the chicks in the car ...[​IMG] Now I know how to get what I want, I want it NOW!

    You guys are just cracking me up tonight with all this hatching business..

    You will never stop once you catch the hatching bug

    never let hubby read over your shoulder, they ask to many questions, then won't help you build things when they know you can do it yourself.

    sally if you are that determined to have serama, I have a couple you could get....hubby makes fun of them because the pigeons in the silo are bigger then they are.
