Greetings from Northern California

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I found this site while researching homemade incubators.  My daughter is a high school freshman this year and she has

joined FFA, and is also in her 3rd year with 4-H.  Her first FFA project is to build an incubator and hatch 3 different sets

of eggs turning each set of eggs at  different intervals to determine which turning schedule yields the healthiest chicks.

After many hours of surfing the interweb, I have found this site to be the most informative.  I will probably be asking many

questions in our quest to complete this project.  If all goes well, we are hoping to raise a few chickens of our own since

our city is considering letting us have 3 hens in a coop.  I would like to thank everyone in advance for sharing any information

or advise.

 

Thank You!

Doug

I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome.  I have spent many hours in the Learning Center and have found the

answers to many of my questions.  I have a feeling that my daughters FFA project is just the tip of the iceberg.  The more I learn, the greater the desire I have to raise chickens as a hobby and as a source of fresh eggs.  I guess this is just the start of the madness.

Thanks again for the wonderful resource.

Doug
