    I moved to Missouri recently to take a job as a biologist. I have 2 acres in the county and have converted an old shed into a chicken coop. I'm interested in eggs for my family, and maybe some breeding. I am also interested in button quail, have an incubator, just looking for eggs to hatch.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Two acres sounds great with lots of room for your poultry. Have you got some already or are you starting from your own hatchlings? Incubating can become very addictive!! It's fabulous as you watch the new life emerge form the egg.

    Wishing you the very best of luck, be sure to ask any questions. Everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    I'm just finishing up the run I built around the old shed and putting nesting boxes in. I ordered some hatchlings from Efowl and am pretty excited about it (not as much as my kids). We got the incubator because we were hoping to hatch some of our own eventually, and we were planning on hatching some button quail for fun.
