    Hi all, what a great site and set of resources!!
    I have kept a small number of chickens for years and decided to hatch eggs for first time.
    I have just put 12 eggs into the incubator this morning. Very excited!

    Thanks drumstick diva - I will check it out.
    Also - I just got a mix of heritage breeds, the lady did run through the names but I quickly forgot, I've figured out most but I have an egg with 'corro' written on it and 2 with 'hp'. Anyone know what breeds they might be?
    I can of course just call them, but it's Sunday down under and my curiosity is getting the better of me!

    Never mind - all good! The supplier replied very quickly (and on a Sunday!).
    If anyone is curious they are a coronation Sussex, and heritage long lay. Our other eggs include Plymouth Rock, barnevelder (autocorrect just put in barn evildoer haha), Ancona (bantam), light Sussex, Wyandotte & polish. So hope it is a successful hatch with at least a few hens!

    Hi and :welcome

    from SA. Sounds like a very interesting group of breeds. Good luck with your hatch, should be great to watch those chicks grow up.

    Enjoy the site :D
