    Hello all.

    I'm new to this forum as a poster, but have been reading for a while. I live in a rainforest (technically, wet sclerifal but like a temperate rainforest) in Australia with my partner and our nearly 3 year old, two cats and hundreds of 'wild' parrots. Who knock on the door for food.

    I currently have 9 chicken eggs in an incubator in my dining room and am hoping to hatch - the due date is Halloween, which is pretty cool. So far it seems to be well, though I discarded three clears a few days ago. They are silkies, ancona and silver laced wyandottes, though so far the silkies seem to be the toughest.

    I've never hatched chicks before, so it's pretty exciting.

    Just think of all the cool Halloween type names you can give them. Broom Hilda, Warlock, Nightmare, Pyewacket,
