    Hi Irfaan, [​IMG]

    How fun you had a chick hatch! Are you going to get her some company and maybe hatch some more?

    Check out the Learning Center if you haven't already...there are a lot of helpful articles there.

    Make yourself at home, it's nice to have you here!

    Hi North Floirda Chick and Sunny and the 5 egg layers..

    Thank you for the kind welcome..

    Much appreciated..

    At the moment.. my whole family is running behind one chick.. quite fun.. hahaha..

    I seem to have flopped the last clutch of eggs, had 12, 4 were infertile, and only one pulled through..

    As for the next clutch..

    I was hoping to get some Black Jersey Giant eggs from Stellar Game Birds..

    *eeeeek excited.. quite..

    Very nice to meet you Irfaan, Welcome to Backyard chickens. We have many members from South African. I believe there is also a South African thread. Just put that in the search box and it should pop up. It's a great way to meet other chicken folks in your area.
