    I'm new to hatching baby chicks and I am absolutely having a blast at it. I'm in Jennings County, Indiana so if your local and need some hatching done or wanna talk chicken hit me up. I am working on getting NPIP Certified at the moment and hope to be hatching and shipping chicks within a few months. But unlike the hatcheries I have seen everything is going thru 2 people here by hand and with a sense of humanity. The laying hens for the hatching eggs are all free range and get some fresh non-gmo garden grown feed to supplement them. If you have tips or tricks or can teach me how to vent sex I would love the help!!

    Thanks for the sexing video. Right now I have Red Star, Wel Summer, Rhode Island Red, White Leghorn, Easter Eggers and Jersey Giant . I am going to be getting a load of fertile eggs tomorrow or Monday. I am hoping for around 100- 150 eggs So I can really get my Breeder Flock Started and by summer have plenty producing fertile eggs to hatch.
