This is why I highly recommend the Genesis 1588, LOTS of PICS :)

    Hi Everyone,
    I've been busy the last two days. My babies have been hatching up a storm. This is my first time incubating and I had an excellent hatch, with the exception of the Ameraucana's (5 out of 14). 100% on the New Hampshires, and 90% on all the Black Australorps. Lots of chicks! When I rushed off to the feed store to get the chick starter, I found a cage full of day old RIR's, all females. I couldn't help but add 6 to my group [​IMG] I think I'm going chicken crazy!

    Hey thanks everyone!! I'm a real proud mama today [​IMG]

    PassthePeace1:
    Including the 6 RIR chicks I bought at the feed store, there this a total of 40 fuzzy butts! I know thats a lot, but several already have good homes waitting. Hawaii has it's fair share of chicken fanatics [​IMG] [​IMG]


    P.S. I really love the lil fuzzy beards on the Ameraucana babies.
