New to Backyard Chickens

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My name is Marlena and I raise chickens, all from babies and they're a part of the family. ūüėÄ I have over 30 and had them for about 2 years now and keep adding to my flock and making things bigger & learning more about chickens. I raise Copper Marans (my favorite), Production Reds, Polish Reds, and Americaunas. I also hatch a few pretty eggs but haven't had a lot of luck. I would like to know more about getting my chickens pt tested and don't know how to do that because I would like to show them. Plus interested in tips on hatching with my incubator.
I'm all for any great ideas and just installed a deer feeder made to feed chickens and made a 55 gallon barrel into a watering system.
I'm big on giving my chickens scraps and making sure they're handled & loved on.

This was my first chicken, his name is Alpha and he's awesome...

Hi Marlena and welcome to BYC. Alas, i have no experience whatever with incubators, but I can say a big hello! There are many threads on incubators and related issues, so maybe you could search through them. Ditto with your state thread - you will likely find members who are close to you.

 

All the best

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

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-
