    Yesterday I set 39 eggs in my bator and realized this morning we would be having chicks for Easter if all goes well. I am so excited. We have 16 buff Orpingtons from Jody and 23 mixed eggs from Ginasmarans. Temps are holding steady and all seems to be going well. 3 weeks is a long time when you are waiting on eggs.
