    I just impulsively ordered 10 hatching eggs for mid April. How do I resist ordering more? [​IMG]

    I too almost pushed the "Pay Now" button for 25 new chicks from McMurray Hatchery. My reasoning to stop is the potential for a late winter here in Michigan. The shipping date would be Jan 30 so that would mean trying to keep up temps in the un-insulated coop during Feb and March. It is really hard to stop from buying more. I have 25 now and get 16-20 eggs per day.

    I ordered for a mid April delivery. Do you have any idea how many eggs I will order until then?!?!?!? I mean, it's just a few more..... what if they all don't hatch..... or......
