    It's a long wait, but well worth it!

    I almost dropped an entire bucket of chicken feed yesterday when I looked in the nest box and
    seen three little chicks! I really didn't expect my eggs to hatch! Wishing you the best of luck with

    your eggs! [​IMG]

    Haha I have no idea. They're like 'tater chips....Can't stop at one [​IMG]

    They bring so much joy. If I am stressed, I can go sit with the chickens, (especially the chicks) for awhile and come

    back totally relaxed, and stress free... You need to post pictures when you get some babies!
