I'm not new to chickens, but I am new to the forum. I'm on a few Facebook groups, but wanted to get more insight than the locals.

 

Right now we have a (surprise) rooster - Hawkeye, a silkie hen - Mulan, 2 polish pullets - Polly and Wiley, a barred rock pullet - Bee, an easter egger pullet - Pepper, a 4 month old sizzle too - Ozzie, and two mystery mutts that are about 3 months old. We actually do have backyard chickens. We live in the city, with a big backyard where the chickens run free pretty much always. Since we have the accidental roosters I decided to take up a friend on the offer of borrowing her incubator and was given a dozen eggs and collected a dozen of our own. I was a nervous wreck the first few days they were in the incubator! Now I'm resigned to them maybe not hatching. Still hoping someone will just go broody for me. Would be so much easier...

 

Thanks for having me y'all!

The learning centre is a good place to look over, as is your state thread.

Welcome to BYC.  Is your silkie hen laying yet?  Generally they are the ones that go broody. Maybe she is holding our for better incentives like cable, smart phone or a sauna.:gig

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Here's a link to the incubating & hatching forum:

http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-hatching-eggs

If you have questions or concerns about incubating, that's a good place to get info. I think there's even an Easter Hatchalong starting up (or already started) that you might like to participate in.

 

Good luck!

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
