Hey everybody. Hoping to become a chicken person like you all. I've been reading the forum for several months and appreciate all the good advice. I often wished I lived out of town on a farm but never made it, so when I picked up a magazine with a chicken on it recently I thought I'd start right where I am with chickens. I've never seen a real live one, so I thought I'd hatch one. Surfed the web, found you guys, and after studying a while I built an incubator from parts around the house. Now I have 22 eggs in it that I got in the mail. They are due to hatch this Saturday, the 21st. I'll be as disappointed as my kids if they don't make it. Everything looks alright so far, wish me luck.
