We have babies

Three weeks ago we put 12 eggs in the incubator. A week later we candled them to see if they were fertile. Nine of the eggs were. For 3 weeks, I turned the eggs twice a day and added water and then yesterday it all started to happen......................

6.15am Sunday morning - we have action, you can see by the two super excited faces that they were starting to peep.

Out of nine eggs we got nine baby chicks, very, very exciting

The kids were beside themselves with excitement and sat for hours waiting and watching. I just hope they don't all turn out to be roosters.
