    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?I haven't been around chickens for 30 yrs..got some chicks 2 weeks ago at TSC

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?26 chicks

    (3) What breeds do you have? RIR I think

    I was given a old incubator in need of repair,while searching goggle came up on the site,I've been lurking around for days,so thought I join. Oh I got the incubator working and have 12 American Game egg in it now.[​IMG]

    Onion capital??? Where I live we would consider that to be Valdalia, Georgia (and I'm from TN.) Is that right?

    Your are going to fit in just fine around here, Rugman.

    That is correct and it's 9 days and counting until they start cutting this year.

    I froze enough last year to last me this winter. I even send them to my son in Alaska. They are the best!

    1) My Grandmother had chickens when I was little, I can remember her collecting the eggs and visiting the hen house. So when DH and I were moving we wanted a place where we could raise some. We just moved to our little acreage in October so end of April we'll be getting our chicks and some ducks!!
    2) We will have 26 chickens and 3 ducks come the week of April 22nd.
    3)My signature line shows the breeds, 5 different kinds plus Khaki Campbell ducks for their eggs as well!

    Glad you went in search of incubators and found this great website!!!
