    Hello, I am very excited about this site. I am a missionary in Oaxaca, Mexico. My home is in Alaska. I have raised chickens off and on in life and each place and experience is different. I have many questions. I presently have about 38 adult chickens and seven chicks hatched on Christmas in my incubator. Merry Christmas, mama Maria

    Merry Christmas! and Welcome! This is a great site full of helpful people and great info. Sounds like you know what you are doing, but if you get a chance check out the learning center, it is a great place to get lots of information:

    Organic farm wife. Thank you for replying so quickly. I am not to experience with incubating. I just read here it should stay around 102 for still air. I read on another site before I found this one, to keep at 110. I had 6 hatch, and one still born. Waiting on rest. I do have many questions.

    I have not yet tried my hand at incubation either, it is in the 5 years plan. But there are many here with lots of experience, don't be shy just ask them!

    BYC, honestly I don't know what they are called. They are layers. Some have bald necks. In Mexico you either buy layers or for meat where I am at.

    We call them Naked Necks here, and they are absolutely gorgeous chooks.
