    Just had to share that I put several different types of eggs in my incubator on 10/3/11. I am pretty excited and catch myself peering into the incubator (through the plexi) at them as if they should be doing something already! LOL

    Hmmm.. friends eh?? [​IMG] Flawed has been a big help with getting things lined up for my new chickens and incubating!

    I am enjoying them tremendously and catch myself going outside to just "check" on the chickens.

    I put some eggs in on October 3rd and 4th. Only 6 eggs though from my call ducks. They'll take about 4-5 days longer than chicken eggs would. [​IMG]

    Just wait till they get close to hatching! You'll be a wreck makeing sure nothing goes wrong! LOL

    I love to talk to them when they are pipping or zipping! They always respond back to me with little excited peeping noises! [​IMG]
