    Hi all! My name is Brittany, and I am a homeschooling stay-at-home-mom. For some reason, I decided that homeschooling three kids, teaching Sunday school, and being a Cub Scout den leader weren't enough stress, so we are incubating chicken eggs. :)

    I was raised around chickens and love being around them. This is my first time incubating them though, as we always left it to the momma hens to do. :).

    Today is day 20 for our eggs, and we couldn't be more excited (or nervous! lol).

    I'm from Texas, born and raised near Dallas, and living south of the metroplex currently. I've been married 7 years to a wonderful man with whom I have three beautiful children.
