I got hatching eggs from ebay, so I've figured in a really low success rate-- in fact, I've been kind of assuming that I'll be lucky if I get 10%-- so, about four chicks?

Then last night I suddenly looked at everything and had the thought-- OMG! What if they ALL hatched? What then?


LOL!

cozycritters, welcome to my hubby's nightmare!

I have just set 40 myself. I tell him 25-50% would be lucky on my first hatch. He thinks THAT's too many. And he's worried I'll have beginners luck and they'll ALL hatch!!!

but remember that will only work once. you have to think of a new excuse after that. I just say well this breed has different hatch times then the other ones.
they fall for it
