I've just gotten into chickens again after a number of years of not having them. We moved into a home that has two very secure coops, but no area for the chickens during the day to be outside. We have just completed a very large run for both coops and I'm so excited. I have one pair of Isabel cockoo orgingons that are about 7 months old. I also have a brooder so got six chics..... 4 buff orgingtons and 2 well summer. My friend gave me 2 golden laced wyandotte .....so I'm on my way. I can't believe how much time I can spend with them each day giving them treats, cleaning out their coops, making an area for them to dust their feathers. this is a blast! Hope to learn more as i go through this experience. I love this website and feel so fortunate to have found it I do have one question: I have 7 eggs in an incubator. Unfortunately last night the electricity went out for 2 hours and the bator temp went down to 77 degrees. Should I start over with a new batch of eggs? I really don't understand candling... I tried that 2 nights ago and my eggs are so dark brown i couldn't see much. or maybe I 'm not doing it correctly. So....I think I'm eggdicted!!!!
