    OK, This is to honor all the Mothers on MOTHER' DAY! [​IMG] This is for the MOM in your life, It can be for a Human Mom, An Animal Mom or a Bird Mom. [​IMG] So The Last Day to set Eggs Is April 28th We Will Set Chicken Eggs Or Other Bird Breeds! If you want to set other kinds of eggs, that's fine with me!! So sign up TODAY and tell all your Friends too!! OH, and if you have any ideas for prizes for the contests let me know too !! If you need to set a few days early or a few days late, you can do that!!!! PLEASE NOTE, I have removed myself to win any contests because I have set up this hatch-a-long. OK! here are the contests for the Mother's day Hatch-A-Long!!
    # 1. Cutest broody or funniest look on broody while sitting and glaring at you, she can have chicks with her. Prize is 6+ Serama eggs from crazypetlady! # 2. A 500 to 1000 word story about a mom and kid/kids, can be about birds or animals. Prize is 24 Java eggs your pick of color, to be shipped in the fall/spring. # 3.
    The Chicks 'N Kids contest will be for pictures of chickens or chicks with children, since this is a Mother's Day Hatch!
    • Those who do not want to post pictures of their children on the internet or can't find a child to photograph can do pictures of chickens with another type of animal, such as a dog, cat, horse, etc. instead.
    • The prize is two children's books: a little children's book, Chick to Hen, and an old copy of the out-of-print Window Into An Egg which is also cool for kids, but more educational.
    • It will be during Week Three, so start looking through your pictures and get ready! (Limit of 3 pictures per participant)

    this prize is from ChestnutRidge. # 4. rebelINny is doing a random prize drawing. At the end of the hatchalong everyone that joined but me has their name in a hat and have one of his five kids pick a name. Either jb coturnix eggs or california white eggs (if I dont behead the roo between now and then) # 5. The best hatch rate. 6+ MF d'uccle eggs from crazypetlady! # 6. The worst hatch rate. Prize is your pick of breed/breeds of 24 eggs to be shipped in the fall/spring. In order to determine the winner, you must post pics of the eggs in the incubator And pics of the chicks that YOU HATCH OUT! I wish I could do more contests and prizes, but crazypetlady, rebelINny and Chestnutridge are the only 3 to offered to do them and I can only do 2 of them right now. The # 1 is the 1st week, # 2 is the 2nd week and # 3 is the 3rd week that the contests run in! I AM Sorry that there won't be more of them, but please have fun with them!

    Just thought I would drop in and say hello! I can't set eggs for this one because I have my incubator full for the Cinco de Mayo turkey hatch.
    Hope everyone has a great hatch!

    Take more pictures and put them on CL there are people who do not have this "hatching disorder" and want chicks
