My name is Mike and I've been chicken/duck/goose sitting for my neighbours for the last 3 years and finally decided to take the plunge with some of my own. The neighbours in question have lent us an incubator and provided 6 fertile (we hope) eggs to start off with. The incubator is coming up to temperature as I type.
Been pouring over the information on this wonderful site for a few weeks now so feel as ready as I'll ever be. Planning to build my brooder once we're sure that we have something to brood and then get started on the coop once we get that far. I plan to free-range as we live in the middle of nowhere but I guess I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Over excited!
Looking forward to becoming part of the fraternity.
