    I _can_ not_ believe it. My first hatch was a combination of whim and faith: wanted to see what our hatch rate would be (20 hens 1 rooster), borrowed an incubator, borrowed a turner, kept the temp steady and water when it needed it. Day 18, took out of the turner, added a dish of water, day 20 my husband yells up from the hatching room "Hey! You have chickens!". There they were, so far 4 fuzzies!

    Life is amazing.

    Have a great day, everybody!
