    Hello Everyone!
    I am so excited to join your forum! I have been chicken obsessed for about a month now and actually just got done making a home made brooder! I need to pick up a thermostat/hydrometer with a probe but other than that it is looking pretty good! I used our "ice chest" from our camper that was replaced with a dorm fridge. I will post pics of it soon!
    I am looking forward to getting some eggs to hatch after we come back from visitting family in WI the first week of march. I would like to hatch some silkies since it seems that I cannot buy them sexed anyway! I dont really want any roosters as I have neighbors and I dont think anyone would appreciate a roo as much as I would [​IMG] so what does one do with all the roo's they get when hatching your own eggs?
    A little about my self that's not chicken related: I am 28, married to my wonderful husband Joe(who thinks I'm crazy!) for three years and we have two daughters Ella 22months and Clara 4 months. We also have two cats,PD frogs and a well behaved mutt, Cali. I work the overnight shift dispatching for the local police and fire departments and it is a slow time of the year- ah, who am I kidding! It's always slow on overnights! It gives me plenty of time to work on my new facination!
    I look forward to all the information and new friends to be gained from BYC!

    Hello and [​IMG] from SC!

    As far as the roosters, you can sell them, give them away or eat them. I prefer the first option! I got my EE roo from a listing on my local Craig's List.
    Congratulations on the homemade 'bator! [​IMG]
