    I couldn't find a Valentine's Day hatch thread when I searched, so I figured I would start one for those of us hatching out on or around Valentine's day....I have 16 BBS that I will be putting in the bator this morning and will be adding some SLW, Ameraucana's, and Barred rocks later this afternoon....Will post some pictures as I progress...This will be my first hatch...Wish me luck!!

    Hello fellow hatchers,
    I am setting another batch today as well. Not exactly sure the count, but should be over 100 eggs. Welsummers, RIR, Buff Orpington, Bantam salmon faverolles, bantam cochins, and a few silkie eggs too. My birds are kicking into gear even in these negetive temps we are having...though most are spoiled and in heated buildings!
    Good luck with your hatches everyone.
