Hello Everyone.. My name is John and Im from Fayetteville Arkansas and I am very new to chickens.. It started off as a hobby for my kids and somehow I got hook along the way.. I have been lurking these forums for a lil over a month now and decided to join cuz I am sure I will have a bunch of questions as I am expecting a hatch of hopefully 44 new chicks on the 22nd of December! I already have 18 Laying RIR hens and in the incubator I have Buff Orps, Barred Rocks, Blue Andalusian, Silver Lakenvelder, Golden Penciled Hamburg, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Blue Birchen Marans, Blue Copper Marans, Blue Ameraucanas and White Empordanesas.... I have read these forums til I couldn't see straight to make sure I have all my bases covered for this hatch and I appreciate any help in advance!
