    you got the chicken fever too? Mrs. Ak-bird-brain got me started on it too. I got all kinds of things in the bator. Working on getting another, or just making my own.

    Yea it happens to us all my DH is now wanting to get involved. He even asked me why there was nothing hatching. I tried to tell him i was done till spring, need to get some more work done before enlarging the flock and all he could say was "why" I think he has been biten worse than me [​IMG]

    You have to watch these people MaryT!
    I think these people are really chickens and this BB is nothing but their underhanded plot to take over and erradicate the human race(think Chicken Run the movie)! Because of them I have 2 (two) brooders going right now in a room with truly not enough space for one! One is a re-labelled dog carrier/brooder with the Dominatrix Society(7 Dominigue pullets -1 possible roo that are going on 5 weeks? old) and the other with 39 mixed chicks (including Turkens, Polish,barred rocks and...????) And I still have to rebuild the gate to the run and have holes to patch in the coop before they can go out and stay safely (or relatively safely)
    I keep asking, "Where's my sign?" but NO ONE ever answers! They just tell me get more chicks and know I am beginning to hear subliminals telling me to get an incubator!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Good luck with your hatching!!! [​IMG]

    (I have 3 of Miss Prissy's chick-o-bators, and a Hovabator going right now... If I hadn't loaned out my LG to the local fair for an exhibit, I'd have 100 quail eggs going in there!!!) [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, there's not a vaccination for BYC disease, which is HIGHLY contagious.
