I am so looking forward to the day I can hatch my firs egg. Until then I am learning all I can about everything which means reading as many of these posts as possible. I have tried to incubate with no success. But I am working on that. Here is the real reason for my post. Many people say they can's incubate or start until a certain date. Why is that? I told you it was a silly question. Is that because they don't want to, or what? I have my own eggs that I am trying to hatch so I always have eggs. The only thing I can think is that is when they are ordering them. Did I just answer my own question?? I am so new at the whole incubation thing and I am trying to learn. Again sorry for the silly question.
