Hi all, I have a few things to ask. I am getting around six new chicks for spring this year and I am getting two new breeds that I've never had before. Speckled Sussex and buff brahmas. I am curious about their temperaments and if they are a good breed for families with children. Thanks. I have another exciting hatch coming, this time with an incubator, and I am trying to hatch silkies. How long do they tend to take to hatch? I haven't ever hatched silkies with an incubator and it seems to be going good so far I just need to know when to turn the automatic egg turner off. Thanks. Lastly, I have a rooster exhibiting strange behavior. He runs around the run all day an today, he even flew out and paced the yard Over and over. When I tried to put him in, he had a fit and ran to the back and into the barn refusing to let me pick him up, out of character for him. I thought it was the crazy weather or the other new rooster. He's a polish roo around two years old.
