    Today my dad said there might be a surprise at home. When we got there
    I saw 2 baby chicks in our incubator. Then in ten minutes later we saw one
    more egg hatch. Two more hatched later. Thanks Jody for the eggs. Those
    are the cutest chicks that i have.

    Wow Drumstick those are beautiful little Buffs. You must have gotten
    the eggs from Jody (Hinkjc).

    Your Dad surprised you? Wow. He must be one cool guy. I bet he's
    smart, funny, and extremely good looking too. [​IMG]

    It must be an optical illusion, but those chicks look twice as big as the eggs LOL! Congrats on your beautiful new babies. What about all those other eggs. Have you candled them? The rest look robust and healthy. Enjoy! Suz
