We were getting ready for bed and one of the kids past by the bator and said " I hear a chirp" I really thought they were all duds. Im the fool who didn't plan on this really happening. I have the brooder ready but not really sure when I should move "her". Dry and fluffy? My chickens were all killed from the dogs next door and borrowed a bator and threw the eggs in right away. I HAVE ONE OF THEIR KIDS! (so far) 18 eggs total.
