    Please tell me this one is going better, especially after your class sent me that HUGE thank-you note. Tell them I hung it on my wall in the livingroom, LOL. Been wondering about you and your hatch.

    Hey Cyn,

    I've seen that note somewhere before!!!!!!!

    Yep, things are going very smoothly! We did the second candling yesterday (day 14) and 9 are still viable. That's very, very good as far as I'm concerned.

    Plus, my crazy Vermonter friend shipped me chicks. Oy! Between the chicks and the egg turner, the squeeking in my room in enough to drive you mad. And between the chicks and the "mummifiying" potatoes (we're studying Egypt) it smells like. . . well. . . it doesn't smell good.

    Sorry I haven't been on much. I'm on hyperdrive. Between rewiring and building expansions for the coop, doing report cards, covering the garden (first frost was last Monday night), and parent conferences, it is difficult finding time to sit for very long. I thought things were supposed to slow down in the fall.

    That's good news, Mark! I'm very happy that most everyone is getting eggs from my crew to hatch right now. Keep me posted! Good work!
