    Hello! I'm not new to chickens, but am new to BYC :) We have a youngish flock of ~20 after starting over this spring. I recently bought an incubator, and have a batch of appenzaller spitzhuaben on day 6 right now!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. What part of Texas are you in? My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas. I've had dozens of breeds over the past 50 years, but Appenzeller Spitzhaubens are one breed that I've never personally owned. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hatch.
