    Halfway into day 20 in my new Dickey incubator and I have two pips! (Actually, I started the hatch in my rcom 20 but halfway through moved them to the dickey.) I have 9 speckled sussex eggs and 7 half ss half ee (yep, pure mutts!). All are from my hens, just testing the incubator and, well, just got in the mood to hatch! I am hoping to sell of the chicks because i dont need them at all and also because I have two dozen light sussex eggs coming next week (with a few buff sussex eggs thrown in)!

    I am so addicted to hatching!

    Oh well, if I get too many chickens, I will just open a soup kitchen!

    ***Psst -- I already have too many chickens! LOL*****

    Yep, incubating in the Dickey is way too easy. I'll have eggs hatching this week, and already wondering what I'll stick in there afterwards. I need eggs, People!!!! [​IMG]

    Yep, I am loving this machine too. So easy! I just got back from work and there are seven little chickies in the bator with another 5 pips. Just started day 21 so it looks like everything is great.

    Now the problem....

    Anyone want any chickies??? LOL
