    My fellow North Carolinians

    anyone have any eggs I could buy? I know there were some of you close to me- out around Cumberland/Bladen/Sampson Counties. I am going to pick up my new incubator today, too hot to buy eggs in the mail, but if there were some close I would like to play- all the fertile eggs I have my new broody...

    I have a BROODY!!!!

    LOL - my first, can you tell? She started to sit during the day on the 4th, got off that night to feed, back on, back off on the 5th, last night did not get off at all. I noticed a new egg every day she did get off, and no, it wasn't another hen. This one is sitting in a little spot she made for...

    What is everyone using to store eggs before incubating

    I was researching and it says a special refrigerator. That you can't use your normal one and you can't keep them room temp. If I tell hubby I need an incubator AND an extra refrigerator he is gonna shoot me. Could I have some practical ideas???

    Hovabator by GQF

    Anyone have any experience with this manufacturer? Or a recommendation. I ask about this one because it is rather inexpensive on ebay, with the fan and egg turner. I just want something to hatch about a dozen or so every now and again. Thanks

    Bully chickens

    I have looked around, but can't find this one- my large hens are killing my small hens. This is not the first time this has happened to me, can you not put two flocks together? I have had multiple breeds do this- what am I doing wrong? I have them in a very nice little house with a running pen...
