    Hi my name is Keri. I'm from SC and I'm not new to raising chickens but new to BYC! I have enjoyed looking on the website for awhile now and decided to join. I will be receiving my new incubator soon and cannot wait to start hatching eggs! I am a veterinary technician, grew up on a farm and have experience with a lot of different animals. I just have a backyard mix right now but I hope to have some breeding groups by next year. I have a little of everything including RIR, barred rocks, Marans, austrolorps, leghorns, golden comets, and buff orphingtons. All different ages including chicks in my brooder box. Some of the chicks came in a mix so I'm not sure what they are yet.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Incubating and hatching is a fantastic experience, with nerve wracking times too! But when you see your chicks in the brooder it is all worth it. Sounds like you have a lovely mixed flock there. You could post some pics of the chicks you are unsure of in the what breed gender section of the forum. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    I'm sure other members over there will be able to help. Wishing you the very best of luck with your new incubator and hope you enjoy BYC :frow
