    [​IMG]! [​IMG] I like your choice of a user name. "Bantyhaven" sounds like what your house is going to be if you stick around here for a while longer; we're chicken-obsessed and very encouraging.

    There is a ton of great advice here. And, everyone is so nice. Be careful, though...the more I read, the more I want to get a bator and hatch my own eggs!! It's really contagious...[​IMG]
