My name is Dennis and I'm new to BYC, but not new to keeping poultry (off and on, but starting about 40 years ago). I'm hoping to connect with other poultry enthusiasts in SE PA. My birds are really owned and maintained by my nieces on a dairy farm in Northern Chester County. I'm the uncle who helps and advises them.
I have several "projects" in the works that I am looking for help with. First, I am going to try building my own incubator this winter to increase the number of eggs I can incubate at one time. I've used the styrofoam incubators a lot in the past with reasonable success, but I'm pretty sure I can make a much better cabinet-type. I'm interested in buying some hatching eggs from local people next spring, especially any of the auto-sexing varieties, like Cream Legbars.
Secondly, I want to buy some more guineas, but don't really need 30 of them (the minimum required by the Guinea Farm in Iowa). I want to get Buff Dunbars because they are color sexable. If anyone is interested in buying some guinea keets next year, let me know and maybe we can split an order.
