    I moved into a new to me "country home" when my oldest was just shy of 6.

    A good friend decided that every 6 year old needs a pet, and a great learning experience would be hatching and raising chickens.

    So he shows up on my 6 year old's birthday, with an incubator and 2 dozen eggs.

    She diligently turns each egg carefully twice a day for the required time period.

    I candle the eggs at the appropriate time interval, to see if indeed they are fertile.

    I see nothing!!!

    In a panic, I order 2 dozen chicks from a hatchery to arrive the day before the chicks are due to hatch.

    I have a plan...

    I place the chicks in the incubator with the unhatched eggs for warmth that evening.

    My daughter wakes me up the next morning screaming with excitement!

    She wants an explanation as to how we hatched 40 chicks from just 24 eggs!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My rooster has always wanted to seem the biggest chicken in the flock! Sad thing is he's a Bantam!
    Every morning, he gets on one of our milk crates in front of our back door and crows! I bet he just wants to feel tall and large xD It makes me crack up every time I see him on his little crate. One time, he actually accomplished at flying up onto one of our tables outside the back door and crowed! I was amazed at how a little rooster flew up there when it was 6x his size! He's just tired of being bullied by the larger hens xD I love him so much! he's adorable and will make you laugh sometimes. Everyday he amazes me!

    Well my story is set back to about 48 years ago( as I am now 49). All our lives my family raised chickens and all sorts of other barn yard animals. But I remember my mother telling the story of my brother (who was around 5 years of age). He was always outside playing when we would go visit our grandmother. One day he was out playing around the chickens and one pooped and he decided he would pick it up and taste it. Hahahaha. I can just imagine the look on his little face. As my mother said he never did pick up anymore chicken poop. Hahahaha.
