    I bought a Little giant and hatched some chicks.
    Then I ordered more eggs.
    Now I needed a second bator because I had too many eggs.
    Then I needed a 3rd bator because I had staggered hatches and need a hatcher.
    Then I got a great deal on a Brinsea that I couldn't refuse.

    You have no idea what you are in for.

    I have incubators and broodies going right now. Hubby says I have OCD... Obsessive Chicken Disorder.

    I swear, the last eggs just went in the incubator tonight. I SWEAR... [​IMG]

    Weeelll, I have lined up Button Quail and Cuckoo Marans for my 'bator, thinking I should go ahead and get the second 'bator and the first one isn't even here yet! [​IMG]

    On my want to hatch wish list I have comprised the following, in order of importance to boot!

    BBS Orpingtons (omg I am in love! I saw the pics!)
    Buff Silkies (I am a glutton for punishment!)
    Blue Cochin Bantams (love them!)

    and then I am hoping that my own pair of Quail Antwerps will start giving me some eggs so I can hatch out their offspring.

    Oh and in the spring I am going to try hatching some Pheasants for my hubby!! (something to appease him so he doesn't get too terribly upset that I am hatching something each month!)

    BS - he's calling bull**** on my comment about it being the last hatch... I'm going to prove him wrong, though. I don't want to sleep in the coop with the chickens this winter... this is hubby...[​IMG]
