    Hey All! I'm a Wife and Mom of Three Little ones. (A Three Year Old Daughter, And Two One Year Olds One Boy, One Girl. (Yes they're all mine, And no they aren't twins! Haha)
    We are new to this but the Doctor actually recommended this due to my oldest Daughter being Autistic and interested in Chickens! We're getting 1/2 Dozen eggs this week for Incubation. We already have the Incubator and Brooder Set up. We are getting Three Ameracuna's And Three Rhode Island Reds. I already have one Coop, And my husband is about to get to building an Extension and A Screened in "Run". As A Kid I often helped family with their incubation and chicken care, And I have even successfully incubated quite a few eggs as projects on their farm. But I know it's completely different to be the one solely in charge of it.. So Any Advice or Helpful tips are welcome!
