    Hey Everyone,

    I know corny subject line but I couldn't help myself lol. But I joined BYC a week or so ago and didn't find the intro section until today. Anyway, I'm not new to chickens but haven't had any for about 4 years. I lost my last flock in a horrible flood:(. Anyway, we moved and now I'm all to ready to start again :D. I had various breeds of chickens, indigo, piebald and white peafowl, bourbon red and royal palm turkeys, and Peking ducks. I miss them very much. But I'm extremely excited because arriving tomorrow are some lavender Orpington and black copper maran eggs from another list member. So if you all have a spare minute say a prayer for a great hatch :D. It's been a few years since I've incubated and I've had the baton fired up for several days to get everything all stabilized. So wish me luck :D

    A bit about me aside from chickens....I'm a mother of 5 (2 in college, 1 in HS and 2 in JHS)
    I'm a nurse and I've been a breeder and exhibitor of harlequin and mantle Great Danes for 17 yrs now.
