    Wew, just finished all 87 pages

    I borrowed a incubator from the local 4H and set some eggs on Saturday night, so fingers crossed this hatch goes better and I can start the chicken journey too!

    welcome to the forum
    warning once you start it's tough to stop
    next you will be looking for more breeds
    when you go to the store you will be thinking
    "oh wow i bet my chickens would like eating that there"
    when i see a lawn that has gotten tall i always think
    "if only i could bring my flock over here they would shorten that grass up in no time flat"[​IMG]
    1st you borrow a bator next thing you know you own 3 of them

    don't worry though we will do our best to suport your new habbit :)))))

    best of luck

    And then I find myself ordering 5000 meal worms to start a farm, cause I love to watch em play chicken rugby.

    After seeing the awesome coops Oz and others have made on this site, I am now borrowing a friends pickup on a regular basis to go scrounge pallets and other materials for the future coop project, (40 pallets and 2 shipping crates so far. Picking up some walk-in Refer panels today.[​IMG]).
