No- really. Top secret- you must promise now that what ever I say will never leave this post. Why all the secrecy? Because I have just set several illicit eggs in my college dorm room. Looks pretty innocent and clean as usual: Scene of the crime- the closet! The culprits: So, I was talking with my parents when they came up to visit me, and we chatted about how my flock at home had diminished since I left- and how I should get more. Then, I decided that I really wanted chicks again, and my parents agreed. So, I hatched a plot to set up my incubator in my dorm room- and then they said yes! I researched breeds and narrowed it down- I wanted Ameraucanas- real ones. Then I had to track down a breeder, made easy by the BYC community. I found a breeder of Blue/Black/Splash Ameraucanas in Texas. I had never tried to buy shipped eggs- and I chose to ship a dozen eggs from TX to OH- during a cold snap. I can say that they arrived safely, if a little cooled off! My parents delivered them to me, and I candled them, but had a hard time seeing anything. My Brinsea Mini Advance could only fit 9 of the eggs (without the autoturner disk), so I chose them at random, and set them at 4:40 this evening. I have hand turned them a few times already- so far so good! I'll keep you updated on the situation- I'm so excited!
