    I love to hatch! I hatch whatever breeds I think are nice to look at and have good personalities. On occasion I hatch for friends and neighbors [​IMG]

    I was only going to hatch my first batch and that is all then this addiction set in and can't seem to stop hatching..but I think now after my silkies get here and I hatch them I got to stand back and see who is going where in my coop..I have a 5 section coop hubby built me and individual yards for each divided off..my rabbit occupies on pen..

    Love it, love it, love it. Growing with the addiction. Started with a homemade incubator. Just got a Hova-Bator. Thinking about growing into a cabinet model.

    My question is who doesn't like to hatch eggs? I have hatched chickens, large and bantam, ducks and quail. I hatch the breeds that I need more of, since it seems that most people in my area just breed chickens to get more chickens! Plus it's fun [​IMG]

    This is my first attempt at hatching and I'm fast becoming addicted. If this first hatch goes well then I'm sunk for sure, my bator will never be empty. [​IMG]
