The Genesis 1588!
I am pleased to announce that I am the proud new owner of a Genesis 1588 Incubator, with forced air and automatic egg turners! I will be outside every afternoon next week anxiously awaiting the UPS man to come deliver it. I'm so excited I can't even sleep at night, just thinking about all the things I can hatch. A neighbor may be getting quail, so that could be a good first go at it (I got the quail and other small egg attachment for the egg turner too). I plan on hatching myself some khaki campbell ducks later on in the year, hopefully I can just buy some fertilized duck eggs from the egg man at the farmer's market. There is the obvious issue of inevitable roosters when I begin to hatch some chicken eggs, this hasn't been completely resolved yet (If you are anywhere near Phoenix and want to be put on the list to get free rare-breed roosters, send me a message).
In other news, I picked the last of the peaches this morning, I got one ounce shy of 10 pounds off one tree that's about 3 years old. Hopefully the other two will begin fruiting next year. Since I am the only person here that eats peaches, that means that I will have eaten 10 pounds of peaches in three weeks... wow.
