New Member Saying Hi

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi ..... New member here although I have been surfing through the site for awhile now glomming onto any information that I found important to me or to the members of my poultry on facebook. My sister and I have been raising chickens for eggs and meat for a number of years now but this is the first year we are raising meat birds from our own birds and not ordering chicks. We are trying our hand at incubating. We have a mixed flock of mixed breeds. Our larger breeds are a mix of Bielfelder, Malines, mistral Gris,New Hampshires and Sussex, we have a Hoodan roo, and 3 japanese type banty hens. We also raise Ridley Bronze turkeys.

Hi and a warm welcome to BYC - glad that you have decided to join us. Good luck with the incubation - sounds like you will have one heck of a busy time ahead of you! It also seems that the dreaded chicken maths has not overlooked you or your sister either :D

 

Theres lots of threads on incubation, so I'm sure you'll get all the advice that you may need.

 

All the best

Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock! With meat birds, high protein, cracked corn can get them to pack on the pounds faster too. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
