    Hi all, I'm new to BYC, but I have been coming here for a while to get answers to my questions. I don't really have a chicken flock right now, but I have a goose (emden) & a gander (Chinese white) that just started laying. I got the first egg today in the incubator. We are super excited!!

    Would love to see pictures of how the forthcoming chick turns out from that breeding.

    BYC isn't just for people with chickens...there are members here with all sorts of birds and other animals, so you'll fit right in.

    Make yourself at home and good luck with the hatch!

    Will definitely post pics as soon as I know I've done things right LOL. This is my first time hatching, and we now have 3 eggs in there now. Just don't know how soon I can start candling them to see if I have a chick growing or not. Also wasn't thinking about the non-poultry animals we have on our little farm haha. We have a male and female pot belly pigs that just had a litter of 12-1 that didn't make it, and we also have a Boer buck, and two does. One just had two little ones today YAY!!! both seem to be doing very well, we have a little doe, and a buck, and our other doe is due to have kids next week. We are going on our second year on our farm, and this has been a very busy spring so far. :)

    Stop with the baby goat pictures. I have managed to avoid getting goats so far and those pictures are too cute. You have triggered my desire for goats.
