    Hello, my name is Lori and I am new here. I am about to embark on a new adventure, incubating my own eggs. I am excited, the information here is so helpful! I have had chickens before but never hatched any. Anyway, thank you for allowing me to join this great group.

    Hi, Lori, and welcome to BYC!!! You'll find plenty of hatch-a-holics here who are more than happy to spread their illness and knowledge around to enable more addicts.

    Hi Lori and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us and all the best with your incubation.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre (even if you have lots of experience)
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    This link to the incubation forum may be interesting.
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
    There's also "incubators anonymous" and the "April / May Hatch-a-long" threads which could be fun to join.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread

    All the best

    Good morning Lori.

    Sounds like a great adventure! I don't have the guts or time to do that yet, but one day..... The contagion spread rapidly (waves at Ol Grey Mare).

    Welcome to BYC! Hope you have tons of fun.
