    End of a dirt road...
    I've been lurking for the last few weeks reading page after page of old posts. I have to say there's lots of great info here and alot of great people!!!

    I have a few chickens in the back yard, 4 RIR's, 2 BO's an Americana and a BR together with my Barred Rock rooster. I also have an old RiR hen and and an old Americana rooster that live on my deck. 2 weeks ago I bought an incubator and threw in 18 eggs just to see "what happens". WOW! Its really cool to see the little guys swimming around inside their eggs!! So, a week later I added another 10 eggs to the incubator then realized I would have to take the turner out at day 18 and bump up the humidity so I bought yet another incubator. Needless to say, I think my whole family is hooked on the chicken thing [​IMG][​IMG]

    I look forward to making some new friends on here and learning all I can about the wonderful world of chickens [​IMG] Holly




    Here's a pic of the old Alarm clock that lives on the deck:
