Tonight I won an auction for some Golden Laced Wyandotte eggs. They'll be coming here from TN and ship tomorrow.
I plan to borrow my neighbor's incubator because the auction is for 9+ eggs (so it's a min of 9, but probably won't be much more than that. I'll admit I'm hoping she sends me several extra in a different breed; she has some really amazing looking birds) and my incubator only holds 7. My neighbor's incubator holds several dozen. I offered to also incubate some of her hens' eggs so that she can work to rebuild her flock as well.
I am so, so excited to try hatching again.
I'm a little scared because they ARE being shipped. And not only will they be shipped, but at the busiest time of year, in cold weather and from almost 2000 miles away. Not good odds.
Keep your fingers crossed that I get a couple pullets from the deal.
Here's one of her chickens.
