I just joined BYC a few days ago . . . my child's classroom is hatching chicks and we agreed to adopt a couple. Of course, adopting 2 actually means adopting 2 plus the ones that no one else will adopt! It looks like we'll wind up with 3 or 4! We only have school 4 days a week where we live, so we had a 4 day weekend . . . we arrived at school this morning to find 3 chicks hatched and doing great, 1 almost out of the egg, 2 being lazy and not hatching yet, but pipping, 1 just being content to stay in his/her egg a bit longer . . . and sadly, 1 little chick didn't make it out of the egg all the way and has died. We're so excited to bring our babies home! We went shopping over the weekend and spent yesterday putting all their stuff together. We have their brooder ready and have begun collecting supplies to build a coop and run for them when they are ready to go live outdoors later. I was so excited to see the 3 already hatched this morning, that I completely forgot to take a picture of them! Can you say excited expectant mama?! LOL!
