Because I'm not already busy enough...

     Just returned from a great two day trip up to camp with the family and decided to set up the incubators I borrowed from my buddy Greg.  I've been collecting for the last week and will have about 24 Americana/Araucana - Maran mixed eggs (hopefully fertilized) to get cooking.  The temps are good, but the humidity needs to approached 40% and stabilized first.  Tonight will mark the beginning and hopefully in 22 days we'll have about a dozen hatchlings to select pullets from.  Last time (about four years ago) I hatched 28 chickens and got exactly 50% male - females.  Hoping that'll happen again this time around.  Fingers crossed!

While we're at it...why not plant some veggies?!
