When I first started my hatching journey my dad was so grumpy at me! He was dead set against me having anymore chickens and he definitely did NOT like the idea of the possibility that some of the hatched chicks will be male. Part of his apprehension is because in August I will be going back to my University (200miles away) and he and mom will be left to tend my flock. After my last chick hatched on the 2nd (He totally watched it) he turns to me and says: "I am going to have to fix something in your incubator before the next time you use it. Some of the wires came loose. I'll have to fix those." I couldn't help but giggle at the NEXT TIME part. I think he might be hooked!
