    Okay, so the bator I used is a homemade incubator that the boys and I made out of stuff in the house.

    This was the first one to hatch... I was completely amazed that there was life in my bator.

    Not the best picture.... There are eight chicks in here. Had to move them cause the last one to hatch this morning is struggling for life. He was born with an umbilical attached.
