    Hi everyone I'm new to BYC. I am from Indiana. We raise Marans, silkies, peacocks, blue slate turkeys, guineas, call ducks, ornamental pheasants, and ringneck pheasants.

    We have a small hatchery as a hobby. Over the last 11 years it has grown from using a Styrofoam incubator to having two 1502 Sportsmans incubators. My husband can't let an egg go to "waste" it just has to go in the incubator. I have to stop him when the months start getting cold. It's negative 20 today and he is ready to get the incubator started because the marans and the ducks have started laying.

    We are getting ready to start up our own website, any advice would be appreciated.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Once you get up to 20 posts, you can use the buy-sell-trade section of BYC. That may be a good place for you to list any of your fertile eggs or chicks.

    You can also get acquainted with other members in Indiana. You can find them here:

    Good luck with your birds and business!
