    Hi all,

    My husband and I have had a layer flock for several years now. Over the last 6 months we have been working on getting a few breeding pens set up (Porcelain Silkies, French Black Copper Marans, Jubliee Orpingtons, and we have a beautiful Gold Laced Orpington rooster waiting for his ladies!). We are excited to be hatching eggs now (first hatch due on 4/1!).

    We have been on the site for information in the past, and figured we should officially join in the fun! :)

    The hatch went pretty well -- about 50% hatch rate on shipped eggs.

    Here are a few of the fluffy little ones :)
