    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. Congrats on your hatching. 21 days is a lot easier than 9 months though. [​IMG]

    Another Ohio Welcome here! Congrats on the new feathered babies...and the one in the oven [​IMG] Scottland Eh? Have some acquaintances that live way up in the Isle of Louis...would love to see that place someday.

    This is a great forum. I've been following it for about a year and half before I ventured into my own "chick-escapades" LOL. They are a ton of fun. Post pics of your new little ones and we'll have a good time trying to guess what they are as they grow. I've never "hatched" eggs before but I would imagine that the place you bought the eggs might have some inclination as to what breed they came from.

    Take care and good luck!
