    Welcome to the forum!

    Beware of the members here. They will be indoctrinating you into the hatchaholics cult in no time. [​IMG]

    Have you had a chance to check out the info sections on the main website yet? Lots of good stuff there.

    Beyond that. When you have questions, ask away and have fun!
