Chicks

Oh I love hatching eggs!!! Watching chicks is better than T.V. I am up to 23 as of tonight with a dozen or so more starting to break out of their shells. Last night in the middle of watching Being John Malkovich I heard peeps from the kitchen, so I raced out and sorted eggs. Yes right in the middle of that strange movie I was laying on the kitchen floor with my head stuck in the incubator. (I did go back and finish watching the movie half hour later) When I went to work this morning one chick was out, tonight 23!!! I should be done hatching by Monday then Kelsey will take the incubator home and they will hatch a batch or two. They want at least a hundred hens.........wow........I just love Spring and all the new babies that come with it.

Baby chicks just in time for Easter. Perfect. Now you can add Chicken Farmer Jennie to your list of jobs. LOL I can't help but think how excited my cats would be over them. Only instead of thinking "cute", they'd be thinking "yum". I know, my brain works in strange ways sometimes.
