    I've been raising chickens for three years and have used this site for reference and then finally decided to become a member. Now I've decided to try and raise my first batch of eggs in an incubator. Going to be an interesting assortment I have eggs from silkies and buff orpingtons and various crosses using my silky and buff orpington roosters.

    G’Day from down under genesis120 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Good luck with the hatch!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thank you for the links. With the info in the links I have improved my homemade incubator and hopefully increased hatch rate.
