    Hello all!
    I've had chickens for almost a decade, mostly Easter eggers and a few Jersey giants and one Island Red rooster that's a bit slow in the head(it seems).
    Usually I just buy live chicks to refresh the DNA pool but I had some experience in the past at incubating but not much.
    Hopefully I can get some advice.
    My husband and I live alone in south Texas, both being in our 60's. No kids but plenty of pets, koi fish, birds, one Weiner dog and we are avid gardeners.

    Our flock numbers about 20.

    I've always read BYC but this is my first time to register.
