    Hello everyone. I've been lurking for awhile and decided to join in [​IMG].

    I currently have a couple of black sex-link hens and a mixed rooster. I'd like to expand my flock a little. I've constructed a homemade incubator but not so sure I'm going to be successful.

    Anyway, I'd love to have a different variety or two....can anyone help? I live in VA....near the point that connects to TN & KY.

    Editted to add that I was told my roo is a brown leghorn....

    I'd love some help with my crazy homemade incubator. I think my mistake was putting it in the room it is in. But, I have several small kids and I'm afraid they won't leave it alone anywhere else in the house that might be a central location....

    I'm really looking forward to getting into some different breeds. There are some GORGEOUS ones out there!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I have mutt chickens,standard and banty all together. I do have 4 or 5 americana hens and one roo so once in a while there is pure americanas. I could send you a couple dozen for 20.00. It will take me a couple days to get that many but you will sure get a variety. I just hatched out 15 chicks last weekend. I can send you a couple pics of them if you would like to see the variety.

    jkcove08 (Jenn), I emailed you last week but haven't heard back....was wondering if you are still able to offer some eggs? Also, where are you located?


    Froggy, what types do you have?

    Hey Chick,
    I am sorry, I replied to your email and I guess it didnt go through. I had sent you a few pics of my babies and adults. I certainly have eggs I can send. We have been getting an average of 10 to 15 eggs a day. If you would like some my email is [email protected]. I can send at least 2 dozen if not a few more, depends on the box, for 20.00. I also have paypal. Let me know, I will be on and off all day. I am in Iowa, east central. Jenn
