    Lets see, I can't seem to shut my incubator off...I just keep putting more in.
    Right now, I have some lakenvelders & welsummers due to hatch Friday. Some more lakenvelders & partridge silkies due to hatch 1/28. Some Bantam Salmon Favorelles due 1/30. And test eggs from Counselor5 due on 2/3.

    That is'nt enough, so I bought some bantam cochin eggs and some more silkie eggs, and am bidding on 3 auctions on eggbid!

    I am a hopeless hatching addict....

    So, what are my fellow addicts up too?

    I don't have anything in the bator, now, but I have week old OEGB's in the brooder. So I guess I jumped the gun a bit. [​IMG]

  3. 'What's in the bator' varies from week to week [​IMG]

    Next hatch will be on the 19th --- 12 Naked Neck x Silkie cross eggs.
    Then hatching again on the 27th --- 21 Naked Neck x Silkie cross eggs, 5 Ameraucana eggs, and a mottled Cochin egg.
    Then again on 2/2 --- 3 mottled Cochin eggs and 3 Ameraucana eggs.

    There are a couple dozen more under hens --- Naked Neck crosses, mottled Japanese, Silkies, and Ameraucana eggs.

    Oh, and a broody Button Quail on 10 eggs [​IMG]

    *snort* I'm trying to show some restraint, I've got 70+ chicks in the spare room in brooders [​IMG]

    I have in the incubator assorted silkies and white crested chocolate polish bantams that are due Feburary 2 and 2 serama hens setting on 14 eggs due tomorrow.[​IMG] I can't wait. I hope to get some speckled sussex and some dutch bantam eggs sometime this year. I've only had chickens since August but I'm having a ball with the ones I have now. I guess I have it in my blood since my parents had 500 laying hens when I was little.
