    I'm going to be putting eggs in the bator eeeeaaarrrrlllly on the morning of November 5th so they'll hatch out on Thanksgiving Day! Would anyone want to be a bator buddy? [​IMG]

    I'm having a hard time being patient! I think I'm going to start collecting eggs today or tomorrow. Of course my 1 Americana hen hasn't laid the past 2 days. She better start because I really wanted to incubate some of her eggs!! [​IMG]

    YAY! We can have some "Turkey" chicks. [​IMG] I'm trying to decide how many eggs to put in the bator. It'll be my first hatch (well, the only other thing I hatched was 2 duck eggs in one of those little dome incubators). I think I'd like to put 25 eggs in, just to make sure I end up with a good number of chicks. [​IMG]

    I love button quail! I bought my daughter two of them years ago at the county fair. They lived in a two piece habitrail. It was so cute to watch them run thru the plastic tunnels. When they started to lay eggs I would fry them and put them on ritz crackers for her after pre-school snack.

    Thanks for the pictures. Sorry I got OT--she's 15 now and it made me all warm and fuzzy to remember...
