    My name is Daymi and I have had chickens and other poultry since I was very young. I am starting my flock over as I recently moved back to Arkansas, I have a Dominique hen, unknown mixed hen, Ameracauna hen, White Leghorn bantam hen, Golden sex link/ RIR hen, RIR roo, 2 light brahma roos, mixed cochin bantam roo, 3 game hens and 3 game roos.

    I found out about BackYardChickens.com because I needed info on incubating chicken eggs, which I have never attempted before.

    Some of my other hobbies are: raising goats, sheep, cattle, and other types of fowl. I also enjoy gardening and reading.

    I live on a small farm with my husband, Fernando, and our 2 Chihuahuas, Gracie & Beetle.

    If you are looking to incubate eggs i have some helpful links and a link to a popular incubation thread.

    Helpful notes from the incubation thread is here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/incubating-w-friends-helpful-notes-links-informational-post-links

    The Incubations thread is here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...chat-meet-new-friends/72300_100#post_16722698
    Don't feel the need to read it all, but if interested just jump right in.

    There is this popular hatching guide here : https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101 Currently there is an issue accessing it unless you are on mobile, hopefully that issue will be resolved.

    Currently there is this April hatch a long, you might be interested in: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...april-hatch-a-long-hosted-by-mike-sally/0_100

    There are Several differ Trends on Incubating chicken, goose and duck eggs and of course there are others [​IMG]

    I do a little incubation myself and the incubator I use was purchased back in 1997 so they will work for some time is ya take care of them ,

    This is a day old Molted Houdan [​IMG]

    Here are different photos of some of my hatches


    The brooder is very important also [​IMG]

    Just because they are small dose not mean they don't play [​IMG]

    Some times the first step is the biggest [​IMG]
