Hi there! I have read a WEALTH of information, from feeders/waterers, pens, incubating, hatching, raising plus a lot more.. I love this forum..My story is.. I have a 14 yr old grand daughter that lives with me. She is in FFA, she need to pick a project for the year. She thought about raising Chickens, but we really don't have the room, and have neighbors.. thought the noise/smell? might not work very well..She settled on Quail. We have a local person that just started raising them, so we got 6 girls (6 week old) from him, planning only on selling eggs.Then she decided she wanted to try her hand at hatching them. She got 2 boys from him and 2 more girls, now for a total of 2 boys and 8 girls. I ordered a Cheap 48 egg incubator off ebay, (should have reserched better). She has 34 eggs in the incubator now for 3 days. We will see what happens. She has hit a few bumps in the road, but things are getting better. If she gets any to hatch, that will be wonderful, if not, its a learning project.I have lots of questions, will be moving on the the question part of the forum, I know I will get all the answers I need, will be asking for myself and also for her! Thanks for taking the time to help newbies like us!!!
