    Hello all. My wife and I have been raising chickens for a little over a year. My family raised chickens when I was young and we have relied on my memory as our source of information on how to... we have done pretty well with our flock raising them from chicks to laying eggs. We are attempting our first hatch and are in need of more experienced help.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I have not hatched or incubated eggs so I can't offer first hand information. BYC has many threads dealing with it and often has "Hatch-a-Longs" where you can read how various hatches are progressing or any assistance they need. The Learning Center is a great place to start a chicken education.
