Hi! I'm Naomi, originally from Minnesota but have lived in Canada for four years now. I have a flock of seventeen hens - six (beautiful, giant layers) white shaver/leghorns, and eleven bantams (only a few are pure - golden laced wyandotte, sussex, silver speckled hamburg, black sex link). I also have a bantam silkie Rooster, a pig, three children and a husband, oh plus a couple cats. Hi, everyone! I'm new to incubating and hatching but you're all correct, it's addicting already. I read the "things I wish I knew before" thread BEFORE I got a rooster, and now I've got a few chicks under my broody girls outside!
