    Ok, I have completely lost control!! I have 16 day-old jumbo coturnix quail and 2 pekin ducklings that are almost a week old in brooders already. I have 7 frizzles and 2 seramas eggs from DipseyDoodleDoo and 13 cayuga duck eggs from BackSwampGirl in the bator. I have 6+ BBS ameracaunas, also from Dipsey, due to arrive probably tomorrow. I have 18+ silkie eggs from an ebay auction that were shipped today, and 9 (I think) possible pure khaki duck eggs being sent tomorrow! Plus my new hovabator 1583, complete with turner, was shipped today. I also have 9 or 10 of my own pharoah quail eggs that need to be 'tested'. And it is the end of December!! [​IMG] I am also the highest bidder for golden lakenvelder eggs on ebay, that just so happen to be from The Farmers Wife. There are 10+ of those.

    Has anyone else completely lost their mind with hatching? I don't want to be the only one! [​IMG]

    Quote:There you go! It's not an addiction, its "business"! Perfectly justified. You might have bought tons of eggs now and spent a good chunk of change, but you will get it all back and more in the summer.

    Just remember, they can't put you in rehab for "business" (unless you are a drug dealer) so there isn't anything to worry about!

    hun, if I had more incubators and more money to whine off my hubby, you betcha I'd be being more of a hatchaholic than i am now (2 doz. of mostly golden comets and i think three rir, 1 of which is a double yolker im goin for).

    The last breeder I got coturnix's off of contacted me, and im planning on getting a male A &M from her as well as MORE hatching eggs, and probably a few cochins, and orphingtons!

    Wednesday im getting atleast 5 RIRs

    Jan 10th getting 3 cochins, 2 silkies, and 10 silkie eggs.....

    then my youngster coturnixs are starting to experiement with thier hormones...soo hoping soon for eggs, and i'll be throwing them in as well!
