Hello all, I am a newbie here. I have been researching raising chickens for a while now, but just recently decided that it was for me. and even more recently convinced my wife that I did not belong in an asylum some where. We have now built ourselves an incubator, and are on the hunt for some eggs locally that we can get started with. My now 1 year old son and 4 year old beagle/rottweiler mutt just cant wait for the chickens to arrive.
