    Good morning everyone! After being addicted to reading posts on this site I joined this morning!! [​IMG]
    I can't even begin to tally up the hours I have spent reading on here! I have been into chickens for almost a year, it all started with getting my children 4 Rhode Island Reds last April from our local harware store. From there it has grown to 10 chickens, 2 ducks and 7 gunieas. We have puchased all of our chickens either at day old status or just a little older, so we have watched them grow. Even our 2 roosters were raised together until we seperated them and gave them each their own set of ladies! [​IMG]
    Anyhow, my first round of incubating went well. So far out of 14 eggs sat, 10 were fertile and we have 6 hatched and healthy, this morning 1 was still making it's way out. Today is day 22, so what's not hatched by tonight I will throw out.
    Again, I spend lots of time on here reading and looking for answers, so thanks to you all and I look forward to being involved with BYC!!! [​IMG]
