I am in the process of trying to find a less expensively priced incubator within the next couple of weeks or so. I am hoping also to find someone with eggs from some good layers as I hope to have a start on a small flock. My teen daughter is as excited as "I" am about it! I am thinking Buff Orpintons or Rhode Island Reds but would be grateful for anything that is a good dual purpose (pet/laying) bird. Please send me prices and such. Thanks to all! Edited, see my last post. Thanks!
