I've visited this site many times but never signed up. I joined to share my homemade egg incubator. We have had chickens for several years and enjoy them a lot. (What I don't enjoy is burying hens killed by domestic dogs & cats, which happens too often). We have 5 acres and try to let the chickens free range, but the toll is getting worse. I wrote some info somewhere on this site (when I joined yesterday); I'll have to search around & get my bearings: the layout here has changed since the times I dropped by in the past.
