    FIRST....April 15 we got our first set of duckling (3) a week later we went back for (3) more. Couldnt help it they were so cute. They have grown so fast. It kind of surprised us.



    First.....April 29 We decided to build our first coop! This coop is turning out to be the Taj, it is going to have every thing you can imagine.


    first.....May 9th We won our first egg auction! These babies are going to be Leghorns. So excited!



    1st.....Eggs havent arrived yet! seller said he would ship by Thurs/Fri.. We will be incubating for the first time. Just a bit nervous.

    You can get the LG for like $40. Some people HATE them, others don't mind them...

    I do fine with the LG, I never have temp issues. I learned from my 1st hatch to do a dry incubation with these then on day 18 add water, I do have humidity issues with the LG, so I do help alot when they seem stressed, its worked so far!!! Good Luck!!!
