Okay this has probably been discussed to death, so show me the links, give me some opinions, etc. We are pretty new to this whole byc thing, but have enjoyed every minute of our little backyard flock. Now we are thinking about trying to hatch a few, for a couple reasons. 1) Grandsons - my daughter is homeschooling them and I told her perhaps we could try to hatch a few for "educational" purposes. 2) I would like to add a couple welsummers to the 4 BO's we have now. We only have room for a couple more, and I have 2 or 3 people who will take the extras off our hands, so we are thinking small, here. I was looking a the little Brinsea mini-advanced. Is it worth the money? We can't handle anything much bigger. I understand it can be very addictive, but my yard is small, we just can't do it. Pros and cons everyone. I know you're good at that. PLEASE don't tell me to build our own ... just flat won't happen. Thanks!! I'll check in after work!
