    I think I've lost my mind! I am setting another 33 eggs tonight, Partridge Penedesenca, Wheaten Penedesenca, Barred Bantam Cochin (Frizzled roo) and 2 SILKIE eggs. I'm so excited~LOL These guys will hatch Nov. 29 and it will be pretty cold here by them. I may have to cut myself off....sigh...I guess I'll be posting them for sale here [​IMG]

    I informed my husband last night that I need a brooder building...this is after I took over the whole 16' x 40' shed behind the house, moved all of his stuff and my horse stuff out and installed chicken pens. He just rolled his eyes~LOL I do have a 6' x 12' fiberglass cargo trailer full of stuff from our move that I am considering emptying (and big ol yard sale!). It would be great for brooding babies:D

    I'm right there with you. Two incubators going and more eggs on the way...

    Hopefully, I'll have a nice young flock this spring while others are just getting their chicks.

    I moved my babies from last weekend outside into the barn today. I have a 6 level wooden cabinet brooder that I am trying out. For those 6 it's super roomy on one 24" X 24" shelf. I traded for this along with several 6 & 8 hole wire hutches over a week ago. I *hope* it works great for little babies. With my asthma, I'm healthier with the babies NOT in the house, but we'll just see how this goes [​IMG]

    My incubator is on with nothing in it. [​IMG] My darn chickens are molting which = NO EGGS!! [​IMG] But I still have hope, that is why its still on. I am keeping it warm. Positive thinking sometimes works !! [​IMG]
