    @chickisoup [​IMG] and I thought that I had it bad!!!!!!

    Well, I wish that I had ordered more eggs, and learned to stack ..... hatch day is tomorrow, and my incubator is NOT full. [​IMG] I was worried that would happen....shipped eggs, just ended up tossing too many. There are a few more in there that I am sure I should also toss, they look like late dead in shells (veins have disappeared and no longer moving). But, big sigh, they don't stink, so I am hoping that my no longer well functioning eyes are incorrect.

    Also, I have live chicks flying toward me as we speak. We will have to hope they make it here in good shape. I often loose one or two.....I am just way too many mail stops away from the real world.

    I know you are DONE with the snow, but I do enjoy seeing it. We lived in Anchorage many years ago and I loved it. We get snow occasionally here but nothing like the great white north. Thanks for shareing your snow with us southerners![​IMG]

    Oh, Alaskan, I'm sorry your incubator isn't bursting at the seams; you'd be happier that way, wouldn't you? [​IMG] I didn't really outbid you on those Bantam eggs last month, but I'm really sorry now that you were outbid!!! I hope that all the eggs you lock(ed) down hatch out for you!!! and that you don't lose any chicks in your shipment!!! [​IMG]




    Update (for those of you who don't go on my flock thread for my updates):
    My broody has been in lockdown at least yesterday and today. But it appears she's got cocci. So, I've got to treat her for that. =( When I picked her up to check the nest for poo (which there wasn't any, so I don't have to take the nest apart and re-build it for her), we rolled an egg out. I just nonchalantly picked it up and slipped it into my pocket. I candled it in the house so I could put it in the incubator if it was developing. It was sloshy!!! So I put it in a sandwich bag and threw it in the garbage. =( That's two of her original nine that were clears. Maybe, she'll get one chick out of this, God willing. :\ We'll see.

    Crossing fingers for your broody! [​IMG] She gets at least two babies and the cocci clears up before anything hatches.
