Hi, I'm looking for some sort of thread called "Egg Hatching for Dummies" or something like that. So far all I see here are posts from people who already know what they're doing (or at least have some general idea). I, on the other hand...have fallen off my rocker and purchased 5 frizzle eggs (guaranteed at least 2 will be frizzle feathered) that are due to be delivered on the 26th and I have NO IDEA what to do with them! We (my husband and I) had originally planned on buying day-old chicks (regular chickens) from the market, but ...then I had to click on a picture and see a frizzle and I fell in love - I don't care anymore if their eggs are the size of a rabbit turd I'll still crack 'em and fry 'em. Besides...what cute little deviled eggs they'll make right? (that's the excuse I tried to use when I told my husband what I did!) -_- I don't even have an incubator yet!! Thankfully we live in hickville USA and there are loads of places that sell incubators - I'm not worried about that. Which incubator though: Manual using regular household air? Automatic? Too many things for me to learn and too little time left to learn it in....what was I thinking?? You don't need to slap me I've already done that to myself a few times...no mean replies necessary The eggs will be in the house with us and the chicks will be in the house with us for 2 months (8 weeks) because I read the forums. The coop will be made out of metal and wood (bought the plans and the supplies for it yesterday at Home Depot) and my husband is a steel worker and will use metal from work as well. It will have a tractor with all four corners having wheels so it's easier to move around the yard. Chickstarter is also easy -found five stores that sell it and I already have some on the way that I bought online. The heatlamp I've already purchased as well as some blankets (because I'm weird). I need as much advice as humanly possible in the next 6 days please....so by all means tell me everything you know from a to z (especially about hatching these li'l things). ...I don't even want to check my blood pressure right now. My ears are ringing so I'm sure it's through the roof.
