Hatching eggs and cute chicks

This is the incubator we ordered recently to replenish our own chicken stock and sell chicks locally. On day 20 eggs started pipping and by that night it was constant hatching. What an exciting event to watch over and over.

Here are some chicks just hatching out.
Tough work being born!

We picked up this watermelon box from the grocery store worked perfect for a brooder.

Hatching Chick!!!

  1. Jeff...I have never been much of a bird fan...I like them from a distance. I suppose the Alfred Hitchcock movie might have had a thing to do with it. I love your postings...and the fact that you name your chickens. Fun Fun Fun! How far are you from where Lil Godbe used to live?
