    Welcome, I'm a new member but have been reading around here for almost 6 months now. I have found it the best place for info "."
    I started with chickens last July, my oldest 5 hens just started laying at 6month old. And I have my first batch of eggs in a homemade incubator.[​IMG] second night they got to 106 on a secondary thermometer. I will candle in a week to see if they are still growing.

    How nice your son is already involved with the chickens! Chickens and kids just seem to go together.

    If you haven't done so yet, check out the Learning Center, it has a lot of very good articles in it on all sorts of poultry topics:
