Hello everybody!! I have been checking this site for quite some time, but just joined today. I live in Nor*Cal, we have 3 Silkies that hatched 1/4/13 along with 2 Sizzles. We also have 2 sister hens, 1/2 Ameraucana & 1/2 Brahma. They are still fertile so I built an incubator & I'm trying to hatch the chicks I'm a nurse & a homeschooling mom to 2 girls, 10 & 3 years old. The chickens are a great homeschool project!! I have 3 eggs in the incubator now due to hatch on 2/13. It's all very exciting to me. As a nerdy nurse, I love the science of chickens!!
