Chirp, Chirp, Chirp....

Had to throw away the eggs in the first incubator when it became evident they weren't going to hatch.
But I hear baby chicks chirping in the incubator I bought. Must be strong little rascals cause they are loud. And hoping it isn't just one little guy making all that noise. Today makes day 18 I believe so they should be hatching by Day 21.

Hatching chicks the "old-fashioned" way.

And my momma is still doing great with the second batch of baby chicks I put under her. The last few days have been cool and rainy and she is tucking them right under body and wings and keeping them warm. Don't you wish all females were as good a momma as banty hen mommas. Would save our foster care system a bundle.
