    Hi everyone. [​IMG]
    I stumbled on this forum the other day while looking up pics of automatic egg turners, and wow! you all have some great ideas on home made incubators and brooders.

    I've had chickens for the past 12 years, and I now have a little flock of 6 white leghorns, who are a year and a 1/2 old...


    This one is my favorite, I call her "Little Miss Picky Bird", lol because every day of life she sits on all the eggs and waits until I go out to gather them. Then she (ever so gently, and yet firmly) picks the back of my hand once when I reach in to get them. It doesn't hurt, and I sometimes wonder if maybe it's her idea of playing some sort of chicken game with me, because after I take out the eggs, she looks at me as if to say "he he heee, gotcha again", lol.


    This week, I brought home 5 black australorp hens, one cochin hen and a rooster. I'm sooo excited and happy! It's been a long time since we've had a rooster around here, and I've missed the "no-batteries-required- alarm clock" in the morning. We're hoping to hatch some chicks sometime this winter, if everything goes well. [​IMG]

    Welcome, this IS a great site, helped me out a bunch of times. Also i love the leghorns, i think they're the most classic chicken out there.
