    I've always had a fear of chickens..never had any interest in owning any...until I saw silkies for the first time at the pa farm show last year. Ended up with a little fluffy flock last spring and just fell in love. Now I'm a full blown chicken-holic LOL. I'm bought an incubator...filled it up..realized I needed another one for the numerous egg auctions I won..then realized I needed yet another to hatch in. LOL
    Now I'm waiting on the first 10 eggs to hatch on Monday!! 3 from my silkies and 7 welsummer & marans. Then I have Favorelles, Americaunas, Arauanas, Phoenix, Polish, Button Quail and of course...more silkies [​IMG]
    This is just all too exciting!! I'll be sure to post pics as soon as I see feathers!! [​IMG]
