    and get the incubator out. You all have been hatching like there is not tommorrow and I am envious. My incubator is going to be turned on tonight [​IMG] . The one reason is my chickies today presented me with 5 nice eggs today and I am hoping for some more tommorrow. So I just wanted to let you know that I blame all you hatchaholics for this [​IMG] but at the same time thank you [​IMG]

    I'm having the same problem as you turnerstar....My hens have started laying again and the marans have been laying such nice dark eggs [​IMG]. The ones from the last couple of days are setting in a carton waiting for me to decide whether to turn on the incubator. I promised the hubby no more till spring....do you think he'd notice?!? The only ones left in the basement are 6 little silkies. [​IMG]

    Oh and Cyn....you are not innocent in this!!! [​IMG]

    Quote:It is spring! Well, almost, we are having our January thaw now. The temps have been in the high 30s, (okay, so that is warm for the UP!)

    I just put 10 more eggs in the incubator this morning. I only had one hatch in the last batch, hope to double my hatch rate this time! [​IMG]
