Chicks Have Hatched!

July 10, 2008

I will post photos tomorrow, but so far we have had ten chicks hatch. The first was just before 1:00am this morning. It’s been a busy day with trips down to the basement to check the incubator and the tub where the chicks are being kept. It’s very exciting and seeing the eggs turn into chicks in 21 days is really miraculous. Watching and hearing the process (they chirp while still in the shell!) was so fascinating and amazing. We were all glued to the incubator a little after 11:00 last night when the first one’s beak had initially appeared. It was taking awhile, so we let it be and put the girls to bed and Lawrence went to bed. I heard it hatch though, and the flurry of loud chirps that immediately erupted. We still have about 20 eggs to go!

So, expect a photo heavy post on the new chickies tomorrow.

    How exciting. I think this is a wonderful thing for the girls to experience.

    I removed one comment because it was a duplicate.
