    My husband are both proud US Army veterans. We moved roughly 1 year ago to the property we call The Funny Farm. We have raised chickens for some time. However, this is the first time I am incubating my own. I have lots of questions! We currently have a lot of different animals on our farm here in Tennessee. We have cows, goats, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, quail, chukars, turkeys, a mule, a donkey, cats, dogs and finches (I think that is all). We also have many children. Our youngest is 17 and soon to be graduating from high school. Some of our adult children still live at home also and we care for one of our granddaughters while her mother works. We are always busy and there is lots of exciting things happening on the farm all of the time! We also spend a lot of time sharing our knowledge with beginning animal caretakers.

    Welcome!

    I know the feeling with all the animals, but you have us beat. All that experience will be so helpful, thank you for joining.

    I also have a child graduating and one getting maried this year plus an Army husband getting ready to retire. Going to be a crazy year.

    I noticed you said first time incubating, have you already started?

    Thank you both for your time in service. I'm exhausted just reading about all your animals, people etc. I don't know how you manage to get things done. But, my hat is off to you. Welcome to the flock [​IMG]
