    Hello, I am new here and I am a young poultry enthusiast, especially when it comes to waterfowl!

    I come from Western Australia and have a bunch of birds that roam free range on the farm. We have a nice big black australorp rooster, some black australorp girls, a blue australorp girl, light sussex and coronation hens, and some cross bred hens. I also have two pilgrim geese named Rory and Amelia which I hand reared from 1.5-2 weeks of age (my avatar when they were goslings). I absolutely adore Amelia, she's gorgeous and has such a sweet personality.

    I joined up in hopes of getting some more information on poultry and perhaps giving some information too. I am recently been juggling the idea of buying an incubator but I know near to nothing on the subject, so hopefully I can learn enough to make an informed decision.

    [​IMG] Australians have a strong presence on BYC you can find them at "Australia six states and one funny little island," and "Australians where are you," threads - they also participate on the Emu threads.

    They would be able to tell you what incubators are available in your country .
