I live in Auckland New Zealand. I have thought about, read about and researched chicken raising a lot! Finally I have eggs in the incubator, a brooder made and a coop planned and started. 8 out of the 12 eggs purchased are growing and we are day 17 today. The excitement is huge but so are the nerves. I almost feel like I have read too much. We have a mixed clutch including silkies, Orpington, araucana and a few surprises incubating. I already have plans for adding other breeds. I have a Childcare centre at my home so the preschoolers are getting a great learning experience along side me and my own children. We now wait and hope for a successful hatch. Thanks for all the advice and interesting tips I have already gained from this web site. Happy Easter.
