Hello yall. Been lurking for about five year and registered for about three now. Have been content with just reading and not making any replies as I gained experience and knowledge but I have become full fledged addicted to it now. In six years I have lost four good flocks to predators and get fed up with it and state that I will never own another chicken, then spring comes around and I get the bug agaian. I have made my own incubators and have had numerous successful hatches with them. Just bought the rite farm 3600 incubator and will set my first batch in it this coming weekend. Going to hatch some Buff Polish Frizzles this time around and hoping to throw some Wheaten Ameraucanas in there with them if I can find them. Bees,gardening and fishing are my other constant passions, my A.D.D. keeps me busy with all kinds of hobbies but I always fall back to my core group.
