So, it's Paul (Owner) and his wife Pauline have chickens. Sherry (office managing extraordinaire) also has chickens....

I knew it was only a matter of time before I would be a proud chicken mother also.

I am human mother, with human children, and all out just plain old animal lover to no end. (Actually, the chickens would be the end, no more pets after these little ladies) So, we carefully incubated them in our CA-115 Incubator in the office. 22 days later, Hen-ry Rollins arrived, my first baby was born! I rushed my little boys (humans) into the office to meet with Sherry to show them our newest addition. The kids were oohing, ahhhing, cuddling, and loving Henry. Pat Hen-a-tar was next. While Henry was drying off, Pat was exhausted from hatching. It was truly an amazing experience from the beginning. We had 13 eggs hatch and 12 of them made it. I took 4 home to brood, and Sherry has the rest she will be brooding until it's time for them to go to their forever home...

I have to say, I have given birth to actual human children, and it was the hardest thing I have ever done. Watching the eggs, day in and day out, anxiously waiting, candling, talking to them, and hearing those first peeps was just overwhelming sense of happiness. My chickens are named Hen-ry Rollins, Pat Hen-a-tar, Stevie Chicks and Glenn D. Henn. They are all adjusting, and had their first time out my yard over the weekend. What a joy to have!  I highly recommend hatching your eggs in the CA-115 incubator with The Basic Hatching Package by Fall Harvest Products includes a Circulated Air Incubator, #FHP-CA115 & an Egg Turner, # FHP-ET115. If this is your first time hatching eggs this package is exactly what you need to get started. Ours was done with great success!
