    Hello,
    I raise a few egg layer hens, but this year I decided to hatch my own. I just hatched a few quails and silkies. Hoping to learn more from experienced members here.
    I'm in Bethlehem, Pa

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I've been successful so far. I'll be asking questions on the topics soon.
    I've hatched mixed breed quails.
