    Hi everyone.. Thought I would introduce myself... Hi [​IMG] I along with my animal loving 12 yr old daughter are hatching our first lot of eggs in an incubator on our hobbyfarm and we have just done "lockdown".. We have 20 white leghorn x RIR eggs in there.. All I can do is wait now..Iv been learning lots from this forum an byc site and read about all the different things to look out for and do to get the best results for my muchloved chickens.. Iv also been reading abit on sexlink to try figure out what I'll get from the them 2 breeds and how to sex them once they are hatched.. And suggestions that you think would be helpful.. Either about hatching, breed I'll get or sexing would be appreciated [​IMG] I'm so excited to hopefully see healthy fluffy chicks by Friday!!
