More Hatching!

2 Apr

It has been an exciting day to say the least! Every little chick that has made it’s way out of the shell has been an event. They work SO hard & then they are incredibly exhausted when they break free. Welcome to the world little ones! We are going to spoil you rotten!


Hatch 1

Emma’s eggs are hatching! I can’t believe it looks like most of them are going to hatch!

The Anticipation Is Building!

31 Mar

Egg Hatching Calendar

The anticipation is killing me! We have eggs set to hatch on Sunday. This is my 2nd attempt at a hatch, the 1st one didn’t turn out well, but that is a story for another time. So far, this one has gone perfectly. I know at least 2 have little squirmy chicks in them!

The one’s I am most excited about are too dark to see when candling. They are from our beloved, Splash Orpington, Emma & her betrothed, Blue Orpington, Party Horn.

I just added the extra water & I am a bit concerned about the temperature. Last time, I added water & like a doofus, didn’t think to add WARM water. The temp dropped significantly. This time, I added warm water & I have my fingers crossed. According to the directions, I am not to open the incubator until after the hatch. Oh my! I can’t wait to see them! That will be torture!

Sleep tight my lovelies. I can’t wait to meet you!
