    We have one more chick. It hatched in the incubator late last night or early this morning. We took it out and set it by Precious and she is taking care of it. We hear peeps in the incubator. Keep your fingers crossed. We have 5 eggs still in the incubator.

    UPDATE ON THE PRECIOUS HATCH

    And now there are five . Two new chicks in the incubator this morning. Just put them with Mama. I will give the last three a few more hours. I never candled so I do not know what is going on inside.
