    Hey I am new to the chick community. I was just wondering which pet do you think I should hatch a chicken or a duck?

    Which ones are more responsive, smart, and which one will imprint the best.

    I want a pet that will really bond to me. [​IMG]

    If anyone is selling eggs in Missouri I will buy!

    Sorry for the double post but will a heating blanket that heats to exactly 99 degrees work as an incubator
  3. Hello and welcome to BYC , glad to have you here.
    I would start out hatching chicken eggs , then after that try your hand at duck eggs.

    Hmmm don't really know about the heating pad method , sry i am no help there.

    Cochins and silkies are a great breed but it really depends on what ones you like the looks of really.

    Second: I would go to craigslist or ebay to get a small incubator for 3 eggs or so.

    [​IMG] Can't answer your question ....sorry. But welcome anyway.
  8. you could go to www.GQFMFG.COM for new small incubators. They are like $16.98 i beleive.
    It's 7" in diameter and 6" high , operates on 110 volts , holds 3 chicken eggs.

    Ebay is also a nice place to purchase the bigger incubators pretty reasonable , most the time.

    Hope that helps some .
