    I wonder if dogs can hear the chickens in the eggs chirping and trying to come out. 1 of my dogs keeps whining at the incubator. None of them have ever paid attention to it before. [​IMG]

    My indoor dog is half deaf, but I wouldn't be surprised if they heard them first! When my babies hatched, they made a huge ruckus, and I thought for sure my one cat would try to knock the incubator around so I took it in my bedroom. He would have eaten any of the chicks I"ve brooded so far given the chance, but he didn't bat an eye at the incubator full of two wet and screaming chicks. I wonder why......
