Don't sell yourself short on incubation.  I've had chickens off and on since I was a youngster.  When I started this flock 3 years ago, I built an incubator.  Hatched 5/6 eggs that I got from a gal in town.  Added hatchery birds to those 5.  Hatching is not all that difficult, if you do your homework.  You can start by reading "Hatching eggs 101" in the learning center.  

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.
