    Please comment if you plan to enter and how many eggs you are entering.
    If someone guesses how many eggs will be entered within 10, they get a prize.
    Yes, I did make it more accurate, this is my first hosting of a HAL and I was expecting more people.
    Any edit to your entries will be void, if you wish to enter PM ME. Also, nobody give the exact number
    you are setting, otherwise it's not much as of a guessing contest/game.

    I'm in. I have eggs set for new year Hal, I will reset immediately for January and those should hatch just in time to immediately set for v day Hal. I might be out of my mind crazy and I am totally going to be out of brooder space by then if my first batch doesn't sell quick enough, but who cares ! This year I really am going to set all the eggs! (Well the ones of the breeds I plan to sell that is. And probably only until about mid April).
