    Hi everybody

    This looks like a great forum for chicken enthusiasts! I've always loved chickens since I was a little boy. I realized the first time I held a chicken I could feel that it like being held.
    From that moment I decided that one day I want my own chickens!
    And now, finally, after probably 15 years I have a place where I can do so. I live in northern New Mexico, and for Xmas present my BF got me a Reptipro 5000 Incubator and 24 fertilized eggs on its way. I AM THRILLED!

    So, I'm Jonny and HI EVERYBODY!

    Sounds like you are jumping in with both feet. What kind of eggs are you hatching?

    Welcome! What a great gift! That way you will be able to raise your birds from hatch and bond with them. [​IMG] They make the most wonderful pets, friends, and companions. Best of luck with your first hatch--let us know how it goes and ask if you have any questions! [​IMG]
