Hello. My name is Jessica. I'm new to BYC. I'm a stay at home/working mom. I have 4 children, a cat and a French Mastiff. And obviously a wonderful husband! I'm really excited to be a member of BYC. I had chickens previously, in Nacogdoches,Texas. We had to move closer to my mother and father in 2013, so we had to give our (chicken)babies up. I cried for days. They were barely 10 weeks old. For the past two years I've dreamed of the chance to have chickens again. Recently we moved to Galveston, Texas and to my surprise I'm allowed to have 12 chickens. So my hubby helped me make a homemade incubator. We set it up and watched it for 4 days. With all of the bad reports on homemade styrofoam incubators I was shocked that ours held the humidity and temperature so well. We currently have 10 RIR eggs in the bator and are on day 16! I'm so excited! I would love any and all advice, on incubating please.
