    I'm in BIG trouble now. I don't know what in the heck I'm going to do. I just ordered 10 RIR, 7 silkie, and 10 Jersey Giant eggs off ebay. WHAT HAVE I DONE??? I have a problem...not to mention that I already have 11 eggs of my own in the bator. I have a couple bators so it's not a problem, but MY GOD!!! I can't stop...[​IMG]

    If you have room for all of them once they hatch or a market for them. You are fine, brain is still intact.

    If you don't, then yeah, you are .....

    Keep us updated.

    Wonderful DW is thinking I'm a couple fries short of a Happy Meal w/ 41 in the bator.

    That's great!! Now i know im not alone. I hope you have a blast. It really is addiction. I've already made contact with a man for more eggs. This time i will fill the bator completely.

    I know what you mean. This is what I did last week........

    Well folks,
    I just had 17 Dominiques hatch last Monday. I finally turned the bator off after running 3 straight hatches. No more for awhile, I said.
    Then my RIW roo was killed last week and I went to the animal auction to see if I could find another one. (which I did thankfully). Then my addiction kicked in when Hatching eggs came up for bid.

    OMG NOOooooooooooo, I now have 12 Jersey Giants, 10 Buff O's, and 12 RIR ready to go into the bator. Fired the bator up last night to get to temp.

    SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
