    I'M DAVE. I'M 32 AND FROM CROCKETT TEXAS. THIS IS MY LITTLE PAGE HERE ON BYC. ANYWAYS I AM A HATCHAHOLIC WHO REFUSES TO GO TO A 12 STEP PROGRAM. CURRENTLY I HAVE ABOUT 200 CHICKENS, ABOUT 30 TURKEYS, 11 DUCKS, ABOUT 70 QUAIL AND COUNTING, AND A LONE GUINEA FOR THE TIME BEING. I USE A CLASSIC INCUBATOR AS MY MAIN - ITS A 5 DRAWER LEAHY'S FAVORITE INCUBATOR . ITS A SOLID REDWOOD AND GORGEOUS. ACCORDING TO THE INFO I HAVE FOUND ON IT I HAVE DATED IT TO BETWEEN 1958-1965 BUT IVE HATCHED OUT MANY MANY BIRDS WITH IT. I ALSO HAVE 2 GQF STYROFOAM SPECIALS. ONE IS THE 1602 STILL AIR INCUBATOR THAT I USE FOR A HATCHER AND HOLDING CHAMBER FOR NEW BIRDS UNTIL THEY DRY OUT AND GET THEIR BEARINGS.I ALSO HAVE THE 1588 GENESIS WHICH I AM CONSIDERING USING FOR MY QUAIL EGGS ALONG WITH ANOTHER DUE TO THE SIZE AND VOLUME OF THE EGGS. MY BIG CABINET BATOR IS A TURN IT YOURSELF KIND AND WHILE TURNING HAS BECOME MY ZEN IT DOES GET OLD WITH A HUNDRED QUAIL EGGS IN THE BATOR. I AM CURRENTLY FOCUSING ON THE QUAIL AS A MAIN SOURCE OF INCOME FROM THE BIRDS. I HAVE APPLIED FOR MY FLOCK TO BE NPIP TESTED AND I HOPE TO BE SELLING TO A FEW RESTAURANTS AND MARKETS IN THE HOUSTON AREA. I AM ALSO GOING TO BE BREEDING UTILITY BIRDS (MEAT AND EGG) ON A LARGE SCALE STARTING SPRING 2010. MY BASIC BREEDS WILL BE BARRED ROCKS, RHODE ISLAND REDS, BLACK SEX LINKS, AMERAUCANAS/EASTER EGGERS, BROILERS, AND MY PROJECT BREED WHICH IS BUFF ORPINGTON/RHODE ISLAND CROSSES .IVE BEEN HATCHING THESE GUYS OUT FOR ABOUT 7 MONTHS NOW AND THEY LAY A NICE TAN EGG AND ARE OF EVEN DISPOSTION.. I ALSO BREED SOME BANTAMS, VARIOUS WHITE EGG LAYERS AND A FEW FANCY AND ODD AND END BIRDS. I'M ATTACHING PHOTOS OF THEM THEY ARE MY BEAUTIFUL GIRLS AND I'M ACCEPTING IDEAS ON A NAME FOR THEM.
