    I have, at last count, about 4 dozen eggs in my kitchen. Two dozen are going to a new home tomorrow. That leaves me with roughly 2 dozen eggs. Big, beautiful brahma eggs. They are for sure in the kitchen.

    In my bedroom I have a beautiful, wonderful Brinsea incubator that I just received as a surprise gift from a wonderful and generous friend. The bator is for sure in my bedroom. I know it's there because I gaze at it constantly. I've even carassed it. [​IMG]

    PLUG IT IN!!!!!!!! QUICK!!!!!

    I have my incubator in the spare room- and the hatcher in my bedroom. I love being woken in the middle of the night by the sound of new babies hatching.

    I also got my new Brinsea yesterday and I also have 1 1/2 dozen eggs sitting on my Kitchen counter. I dont think I can wait till the 25th Dec, so today Im going to plug it all up and leave it and might put eggs in there in a few days after I get the temp I need. I dont think I could cope with 18 babies tho so 8 is going to be my 1st ever try at hatching eggs. If I get 2 out of 8 I will be happy

    What is wrong? Easy - those eggs in the kitchen aren't on their way to me - that's what's wrong!

    Below is a picture of my new Brinsea incubator that I recently purchased to have "on hand" so when spring came I could incubate just a few eggs.

    I'm not really sure what happened (but I think Mahonri had something to do with it) - I was storing it near my kitchen when I came home one day to 29 eggs in it.

    They must have jumped in due to being cold. That's the only logical explanation I can come up with. So it's good that you've kept yours in the bedroom. I don't know what the range is on a jumping egg but I assume you're safe.

    @ superchemicalgirl can you please tell my hubby that those eggs do jump right in there.

    Super small 5 room farmhouse - 20 degrees outside - two german shepherds and all their paraphernalia inside - two cats that are always into something inside - a husband with a rather large gun collection that doesn't particularly like chickens, but humors me.


    Nuff said? [​IMG]

    I want to! I definitely want to! But I don't have a death wish. [​IMG]

    Nothing is wrong, Kat. You're just waiting on my Calls to start laying so you can test that new incubator out on some little fuzzies with bills and webbed feet-that's all. [​IMG]
