Incubating Eggs

Sorry I have not blogged in a while.  We just started school, last week. We are schooling a friend too.


brooder 2

day old chicks



We have incubating 20 eggs, 6 have hatch so far. I got to watch two eggs hatch, it was amazing to watch them break a hole in the egg and then slowly break out.  We would let them dry off a bit in the incubator, and then we would moved them to the brooder.  Then we would show them how to drink.
It was so amazing to see a egg transform into a chick.
here is a video of a chick hatching

So good by for now and remember Jesus loves you
for our incubator: foam cooler, shop light, 15 watt bulb,and a piece of glass.
