    First hatch as you know. I think I have read through every page on this board! My son who is aged 19 is more nervous than I am. I thought I would share his music with you. He sings from morning 'til night www.myspace.com/AtlanticFront . He is the guy on the right of the pictures.

    Isnt the anticipation exilerating? Just hatched 8 new chicks on Saturday. I was out of town when it started so when I got home there was one chick. We went to bed about 10pm. When we got up at 7am on Sunday there were 7 chicks. The last one hatched 3pm on Sunday. This was all new to me. I got a hen on 07/01/07 that laid infertile eggs so I purchased 10 eggs from a wonderful woman off Ebay. I did not have a Roo and I wanted to experience Babies at least once.
    Now I hope they all do not end up being Roo's. I live in a residential area and not really allowed to have chickens. My neighbors adjactent to my yard do not care if I have chickens. Once I learn how to post pictures I will.

    Good Luck,
    DeeDee
