New arrivals! This just in from a few moments ago...
Look who's hatching in our incubator! I think we have about a dozen new little buddies so far and more on the way. These little guys are getting nice and dry - then I'll move them to a brooder. Having a few troops in the incubator will stimulate the other chicks to bust out of their pods... I mean... eggs.
These babies are just "mutt chicks" from our mix of chickens in the yard. But we've had some good hatchlings and in fact, we are working toward a "custom" chicken for our farm. Several of Floppy's Five from last fall turned out to be spectacular hens. But more on that later - I need to run back downstairs and see if we have any more new arrivals!
Happy Tuesday everyone! Did anyone else have a hatch recently?

No I haven't had a hatch, my eggs are in the fridge and arent doing anything :o( but helping me stay green with envy.
Right on! They're awfully cute little fluff balls. :)
Great job! The mixed ones always hatch better.
That's great! I love when they start hatching. It's just like opening presents at Christmas. lol
Oh Farm Guru (see what I did there?), any recommendations on incubator brands. They only carry Little Giant at TSC, and it had good reviews on their site.
Hi Ginny! hee hee hee its a good thing your eggs ARENT doing anything! hee hee hee I'd laugh a lot if they were dancing around in there!
Rae - I just LOVE the peeping.
Thanks Becky! I think we did OK but I'm not sure anymore are going to hatch.
SFG - it is like Christmas! But the presents open themselves.
hey Jeff! We just have one of those cheapy (cheep-y?) styrofoam ones. I still cant believe it works.
Ooh! ooh! Look what I missed - how adorable! I can't wait to see more of these guys, it's so fun to see how the mutts develop!
