Hi! I’m new here. I love farm life. Have always wanted to live on a farm, but settled for a small house with a couple acres. I just got my first two chickens from my bestie who lives on a farm. I’ve been wanting chickens for years but wanted to learn more before I jumped in. Now I have to learn fast because the chicken she gave me has laid 8 fertile eggs & she also gifted me an incubator with 7 chicken eggs inside “cooking”!! So exciting except now I’ve had my face buried in my phone and tablet trying to learn as much as I can before they hatch. The eggs are all different so I have no idea what kind they are. Times up! Now there is an egg with one little pip in it that’s been sitting that way for over 12 hours. I’m worried it’s not gonna make it. I can see movement but no action. I have no idea what I’m doing so I’m just gonna let nature take it’s course. And btw, the 2 chickens I have are Dark Brahmas & the egg layer killed the first chick that hatched. I took them from her and put them in the incubator. Those are the ones that are starting to hatch now. Pray for me y’all, I’m in over my head!
