Hi

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I moved to Missouri recently to take a job as a biologist. I have 2 acres in the county and have converted an old shed into a chicken coop. I'm interested in eggs for my family, and maybe some breeding. I am also interested in button quail, have an incubator, just looking for eggs to hatch.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Two acres sounds great with lots of room for your poultry. Have you got some already or are you starting from your own hatchlings? Incubating can become very addictive!! It's fabulous as you watch the new life emerge form the egg.

Wishing you the very best of luck, be sure to ask any questions. Everyone here to help and very friendly.

Enjoy BYC frow.gif

I'm just finishing up the run I built around the old shed and putting nesting boxes in. I ordered some hatchlings from Efowl and am pretty excited about it (not as much as my kids). We got the incubator because we were hoping to hatch some of our own eventually, and we were planning on hatching some button quail for fun.

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. Good luck with your chicken adventure. Button quail are so adorable!
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-

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
