    I have been reading different threads but then I lose track of them and someone else is hatching and I am not sure what happen with who so.... what kind of totals does the BYC folk have for this season so far?

    I am still in the middle of a hatch so I'm going to wait until tomorrow (hopefully it'll be done by then) and post results.

    Oh, bragging is encouraged on this thread. I understand how new parents can be. [​IMG]

    I've hatched around 80 chicks since the beginning of the year. I have around 25 more eggs in the incubator now, and I have about 9 dozen or so eggs coming in the mail this week.

    Is there a season?

    Nobody told me there was a season.

    Was I hatching out of season? Is there a penalty?



    We are probably around 100+ a few for the year.

    I was going to cut back, but somehow the bator is filling up again this morning, AND I have been egg shopping.

    We really need to get the chicks in the garage outside. 5 brooders is way too many.

    The new housing floor / base is complete. Just need a couple of more weeks to get a roof on it and have it enclosed, then out they go.
