New chicks are coming

Friday, June 3, 2011
Well, last night I go up at around 3 am to a baby chick in the incubator, hatch day is not till Sat and there is another one that is hatching as I write this. Look like everything is going to go a bit early this time around. After all have hatched I will clean and reset the incubator with a dozen EE's and what every my friend brings from her chickens.
She had a coon get a lot of her baby chick and her ducks over the last two week so to help her restock her flock I am going to incubate some eggs from her laying hens. We share all the chicks that I incubate and trade bird to have a lot of different types of birds in our flocks.
I will add pictures later after every one has fluffed out.
