    Hello everyone!

    I have been stalking the forums since I got my chickens at the end of June. It has been a whirlwind trying to learn everything while expanding my flock. I was given five hens (not sure of breeds but fairly certain two are Rhode Island reds and the other a cinnamon queen?, have no clue on the other two). I got a rooster two weeks after and am at the hatching stage of incubating my eggs. You guys have already been extremely helpful to me and I am grateful for all the help, support and knowledge you all have! I am excited to get to know fellow chicken enthusiasts and gain more knowledge as I navigate the best way to raise my flock.

    :welcome :frow You've come to a good place. Many people here have plenty of hatching experiences. Now out of curiosity, what incubator are you using? Good luck with your new flock and have fun...
