Hi there. Thank you for letting me join your community. My husband and I recently moved to 5.5 acres outside the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada and, after raising my kids, I am excited to finally start my mini "hobby" farm. We have 2 dogs and a cat and I thought chickens would be a good place to start with the farm animals. I bought an incubator and about a dozen Easter Eggers. I did research and that was how I found BYC. The first one hatched Easter Sunday and 2 more followed the next day. Sadly that seems to be all I was able to keep viable. However, I am hooked. I am off to buy more next week! Hopefully, I can figure out where I went wrong.
