    Hello, I am a woman in my eighties. I live with my husband who is an invalid. We had a small family farm while our children were growing up. We have cats, a dog, fourteen RIR hens, and a mixed breed rooster. which are now three years old. We always had hens but never did much hatching chicks. Chicks are now so expensive that I want to try to hatch some. I have an incubator, but never had a lot of luck with it. Rissa
