    Hey all
    I just officially joined the forums today because I had a dilemma I needed help with. That said, I have been following these forums since I first got the crazy idea in my head to raise chickens. I have learned so much from all of you, from the sidelines, and I appreciate all of knowledge and advice given on here. Right now I have a small flock of 5, and I have one complete failure of an incubation under my belt. I live north of Seattle and am in the process of getting my little hobby farm up and running.

    So glad you finally joined! Incubation can be difficult at first. Do some reading on line on the best temps, humidity levels and lock down. It helps to take notes along the way so that you can use them for diagnosing any failures or successes. And of course always start with good eggs and a good incubator.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!
