    Hey all!!!
    I just want to say hi my name is Chris. And i am from Delphi, Indiana which is about 20 minutes north east of Lafayette (Purdue country). Ive been lurking around on here for a couple weeks. And decided it would be time to make it official and do a new member thread. And say hi to everyone. First off i would like to say thank you for this forum. People seem to be pretty helpfull, nice, and knowledgeable around here. Ok a little about me...

    I am 30 years old. And I have been married for 1 1/2 years now to the greatest wife a guy could ask for. We have been together a total of 6 years now and she has put up with all my crap so far so i have to give her alot of praises for that. Together we have purchased a small "farm" i guess you could say with 8 acres. And we are planning on becoming a small hobby farmer by raising a few farm animals especially a flock of show quality coridale sheep which is her dream to carry on her family tradition... We also are becoming hobby breeders of some exoctic animals such as sugar gliders, hedgehogs, chinchillas, and russian tortoises...we also have a couple dogs one which was a rescue and the other was given to us from a friend...ok so now why im here. We are new to chickens. We have only 5 (right now). 1 polish rooster, 2 polish hens, 1 RIR and 1 RIR/ Polish cross for a couple weeks now. I got some eggs from a lady down the road to put in an incubator along with a couple that i have collected. They have been going for like 7 or 8 days now. All are looking pretty good right now. They should hatch around christmas eve i believe. Im pretty excited for them to hatch as this is my first time doing this. Well i hope to meet and talk to alot of you on here. Thanks!
