    Sin, MX. now CA.
    I'm new here already have 5 hens and a rooster, I maid my own chicken coop and today I bought a Genesis Hova-Bator 1588 incubator from CL almost new (used once only) with auto egg turner for a half price, well my plans are grow my own layer starting from eggs :) and maybe sell some. Recently got an open heart surgery so I'll be dissabled for a long time now I'm getting well a little weak but here I am.

    Good luck on your recovery--I know it can be a slow road, but you'll get there.

    Your chicken house looks great! Your flock looks very happy. And congrats on the incubator!! Half-price--wow! I really wanted one of those but too expensive right now. I kept my eye on CL but no luck. I bought a Little Giant with auto-turner at Tractor Supply instead and a separate thermometer/hygrometer at a pet store.

    I live in Vermont now but was raised out west (born in San Francisco, grew up in Seattle). Welcome!

    Oh, I also wanted to say that you should sanitize the incubator really well before using it,

    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Happy you joined us! Sorry to hear about your surgery. Maybe your chickens can be a little therapy for you. Good luck to you!
