We moved the last of the chickens in our “Broodabago” (the camper we turned into a brooder) out to the Grow Up Pen.
We now have about 100 chickens in our Grow Up Pen. We have Ameraucanas, Wyandottes that are Blue, Black, and Splash. It turns out if you breed a Blue Wyandotte rooster with a Blue Wyandotte hen you can get three different color offspring. We also have white Silkie and White Crested Black Polish. We are taking a break from hatching right now and plan to restart in July. We have sold a lot of the chickens we hatched. Lots of people are looking for laying hens. We recently traded 2 Black Polish for a 7 month old Rhode Island Red. She is the only RIR we have. Hopefully she will be Big Boys hen. Big Boy is our pet rooster. He’s mixed but we love him. He was the first chicken we ever hatched.
Our chickens have come through their illness. Antibiotics done. Worming done. Healthy chickens check.
Time to talk incubators and eggs.
Our meat birds and silkie chicks will be here the week of Feb 7th- video of the camper we converted to a Chicken Brooder also known as the “Broodabago” coming soon.
Going to pick up some eggs today for Black Jersey Giants. They will go in the incubator today.
More videos coming.
Keep watching and reading.

Many people have watched our chicken incubator video and asked specific questions on our you tube site about how to wire the incubator to include the thermostat, computer fan, and light bulb. Please watch. This incubator has worked great for us. We started our flock with this video. Our neighbor gave us fertilized eggs and we built the incubator out of items around the house. We did have to purchase the thermostat. We bought it from Lowes in the water heater section. We put 11 eggs in and 8 hatched. That's a great result for our DIY Incubator.
