    Firstly I just wanted to thank all of you for this site, I have learned so much in the last few months just from reading the forum and the web site, I am in love with all things chicken!!!!

    I have a selection of chickens, isa browns, polish crested, aracarna, rode island red, silkie, austlralop, and a rooster(?) of unknown breeding.

    Well my broodie silke mums have hatched out four, one each of their own and one each of aracarna x? and polish crested x?, the are just so cute.

    I plan to make the incubator from the plan from the web site and just can't wait.

    Keep up the good work guys I love it.

    PS I am here in seville, australia on a little 8 a property with 15/4 chickens, 5 horses, 4 guina pigs and one dog, whew!!!!


    love Sandy
