Chirping in the Bator 😁

Our incubator sits on a filing cabinet in our bedroom. We just got home and I heard chirping... How am I supposed to sleep tonight knowing something might happen?! I could miss it. *sigh*

Yay!!! First chick just hatched!
There were 4 eggs. When I candled before "lockdown" one was a quitter. So, we will see how the other two do. smile.png (today is day 21)

:clap Nice job!

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

Thank you!! It was a thrift store incubator for $5. So, I used "mutt" eggs to test it out. smile.png happy to say it did well. 4 eggs- 1 was a quitter, 2 hatched, 1 still moving in the egg. Today is day 22.
