    I am new to this site and the "chicken adventure". I have 2 Araucana mixed chickens and 3 white leghorns. I also have 9 Cayuga ducks. I have received all of these at 1 month old and older so I haven't hatched any yet. I am fixing to set some barnevelder eggs I got shipped to me. I'm going to try the dry incubation method and I'm hoping to get a good hatch rate! Living in Oklahoma the humidity here is high at the moment. Anyways, I'm looking forward to learning lots from you all and reading all the threads I can. Thank you so much for having this site available and all the knowledge!

    Thank you for the links! My avatar is actually my Chinese Crested dog Einstein. Everyone calls him ugly but I love him and that's all that matters lol! I'm off to go do some reading now! Gotta set those eggs tonight and I want a good hatch! My incubator has been running 3 days so I can get the temp right. Thanks again everyone!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but you can pick the brains of our duck experts at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hatch.

    I think your Chinese crested is beautiful - some have done very well at Westminster over the past few years and I was cheering for them. Is he good around the chickens?

    Sending you good hatching vibes [​IMG] and welcome to Backyard Chickens
