    Hi everyone. Just joined and I've been doing much reading on the site. I came across byc a few weeks ago and found some great answers to many of my questions. I have about 25 chickens free range and I enjoy raising them a whole bunch. I've got three hens that are waiting to hatch some chicks in less than 7 days. A great miracle every time I see the chicks hatch! Just an awesome thing to see. I recently purchased a brower galvanized 846 model and ill be trying to hatch some chicks with. Thanks to all the members that pitch in for some great advice. I'll make sure to return the favor whenever I can!

    FYI. Just came home and found a lost hen. Not really lost but I thought she had been kidnapped, hadn't seen her for about, yes, 23 days. Got new additions to the family, 13 chicks!
