    Setting 7 Olive Egger eggs tonight. Who's with me?

    Now that my hatch is done -- 6 chicks from 7 eggs, but one died. (sigh) I'm incubating again. This time I got a bunch of olive egger eggs from newlyweds (8+). She had added 3 extra eggs to the lot for 11. One broke -- no biggie. I've got a 7 egg incubator. So, I have 3 extra eggs.

    I have no broody hens, but I do have ducks. [​IMG] They haven't been laying lately. Other than throw them out, what should I do with them? They can't possibly be viable when I've hatched these out. I was thinking of keeping an eye on quitters and exchanging them. I do have an old hovabator, but I have had such lousy luck with it, I don't think it would work.

    And no, you enablers! I'm not buying ANOTHER incubator. [​IMG] [​IMG]
