    Holy chicken poop batman!! I am so gentle when I handle my chicks ... seems to me the hatchery causes a lot of stress to those little chickies

    Well, I was going to post a few more but there are so many! haha. Cackle alone has tons! The owner does mention the new and antique incubators... I think that is cool!

    (I was originally looking for videos to see if most of the large hatcheries incubate eggs upright, or laying down. I'm prone to getting sidetracked!)
