I'm doing it at school for my kindergarteners!- they're very excited! It's so much fun to candle them and show them the chick "swimming" around! They're just amazed! My chicks are due the 19th. They usually hatch a day or so early though.


If you haven't seen this video of a chick growing in the shell, it is one one of the best I have seen. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PedajVADLGw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I think the kids would get a kick out of it.

Never calculate upon juvenile poultry until the necessary process of incubation has thoroughly materialized.

These two started it.

 

The sexlink cockerel tries to break it up.

But they didn't stop until Miss Tweety Bird came over and pecked them all soundly.

This is the last photo I took of my chickens. It was yesterday. It was their first time on grass. 

 

The larger ones are 7 week old Queen Silvia's. The smaller ones are 5 week old Queen Silvia's. They transform from dark brown chicks into these beautiful black and cream birds. A wonder to behold!

Blooie gifted me her svart hona egg prize from the Easter food contest. :D The breeder who donated them's hen went broody so they weren't able to send them yet. Since I'm new to hatching I've been thinking of getting some cheapo hatching eggs on eBay to practice and to test the incubator so I don't wreck the fancy eggs. I'll see how that goes. I think the incubator is ready but I'm also still trying to figure if it'll be worth it to buy or make an egg turner.

Last picture of my chicken I took. My broody hen and my finger. LOL! The new part of chicken house with make shift broody boxes to make her feel at home.



Here's the outside. Needs steps/porch, roof, trim, paint, laying boxes, pulley to open pop door. etc. Old section will get paint and new trim as well.
