No, not a crappy mistake. Aw, it happens hun. It's a huge learning curve. I was to slow on the link and missed it. I'll have to see pics of the babies. I'd wait a little on Sarah's. I just set more and I think it may be the bitter cold she's having. No luck. I think I have tossed just over half, between you and I. You may want to wait a little while before talking to her about sending more?

I will catch up on everyones babies and fun coops tomorrow
I hope you get better visibility. Sometimes tinted eggs are just super hard to see. Hang in there Moma!

And I didn't think my husband was going to be excited about this endevor, but on the way home he was talking about keeping a rooster so we could raise our own meat and now he's open to the larger breeds. Woohoo!

I'm already contemplating fencing in the front yard and keeping 2 flocks.
And here we go! Now you have the support, we prob have another hatchaholic here, hehe! Arn't they fun!
