    For me, it's EE vs Araucana vs Americana (I know spelled wrong but I'm too lazy to look up). Seems every day there are at least 2 posts on this.

    "What's the right temp/humidity for hatching eggs? I have mine in an incubator but don't know what to set it on"

    Holy ....! What are they doing in the incubator already if you don't even know what the temp or humidity should be??

    This one drives me nuts.

    Quote:Actually, I have no idea what the humidity should be. I just randomly put water in when I feel it needs it. I've always had great hatching success so I've never even thought to ask anyone.

    As for the various colored egg layers . . . someone go tell those birds to start laying white eggs so all the questioning can end already! [​IMG]

    I think the sex question, unfortunately I'm guilty of asking it too. [​IMG]

    For me, without a doubt, it's "my chicks are being aggressive. Does that mean they're all roos?" As if there's no such thing as a pecking order or that all pullets are angels and only the boys cause trouble. :|

    I don’t know if this is tiresome or not but I find it very amusing when people ask me if my rooster lays eggs; and believe it or not people ask it fairly often.

    "So you have chickens and roosters?"
    This is asked of me quite often, not on line though. [​IMG]

    Also, not chicken related:
    "Your baby ponies can pull a wagon?" "How old are your baby ponies?"
    They are not babies, and yes they can pull a wagon. Small horses are not always foals.[​IMG]
