    Hello,

    I just joined up today looking for some advice on some eggs we hatched! We live on a 6 acre smallholding with 28 chickens (at the moment - some are destined for the pot, we hope to hatch some more this year and no doubt the fox will get one or two as he always does), 4 ducks as well as pigs, bees, 2 horses and cats. This year we are adding some sheep and maybe turkeys. :) We also have a 2 year old and a 4 month old!

    The chickens are a mix of proper breeds (cream legbars, Araucanas, Marans, buff Orpingtons) and some mongrels :) and the ducks are Muscovies.

    Anyway...hello!

    Hi :welcome from Yorkshire UK

    Glad you could join the flock! That's quite a mix of animals there that sure must keep you busy! Congrats on your new chicks :clap It's just great when you see them hatch and I'm sure you will soon get the incubating bug! Please do pop by the UK thread, the link is in my signature. We may have some members form down your way on there.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
