Hi everyone! I'm originally from NYC and I've recently moved upstate. My boyfriend's family has been raising exotic birds for many years and I'm super interested in chickens in general. I have two Nigerian Dwarf Goats that live with some Sebright friends. Separately, we've got some Silkies, Leghorns, and Rhode Island Reds. I currently took some chicken eggs to try and incubate on my own, because I plan to repeat the process with my preschoolers very soon, but I didn't want to feel like I was in over my head. This is my first time incubating eggs, and I'm incredibly excited and nervous for them. I just keep hoping I'm doing everything right, and they seem to be developing right on track so far. They're only on day 5, but I already feel like a chicken mom. I joined today because I realized I had a lot of questions, and would go through old forum posts for answers. I guess I finally decided that I should probably have a place to ask some experienced people for help if the situation arises. Hope you're all having a great day!
