Between the hand slapping,hand wringing ,head bangings and all the other crazy things we do to ourself its a wonder we are not commited. My first eggs of this year went into lock down yesterday. I usally take a break when cold weather hits and take up as soon as the hens start laying more wich was suprising they started in January. So I have 2 eggs that made it to lock down,others proubly froze before I notice the egg laying pick up.Plus they where laying them in every hidding spot they could. So I keep slapping my hand everytime the thought of opening the bator crosses my mind. Im usally not abusive to myself on purpose untill its lock down time.
