Long time chicken enthusiasts here.

My husband is the one who got me started with the chickens.  It all started almost 2 years ago when we got some chicks for easter.  He fully intended to keep them and raise them.  We were living in a very urban area so it was interesting.

He built a chicken coop in the back yard and LOTS of people saw those chickens.  Eventually we came under the radar of the local zoning authority.  They wanted the coop and chickens gone.  It worked out because we ended up moving out to the country (well kind of) and we have 3 chickens, 1 rooster, 1 mini horse and a chicken who is 1 month old.  Not sure if that chicken is male or female yet. Hatching that chicken was quite an adventure.

I plan to document that chicken's hatch as well as try to answer all of the questions we had in reference to hatching, humidity, building your own incubator on the cheap, etc.  If you think of anything, drop us a line!
