Three weeks ago, I set some eggs in the new incubator to hatch. I planned them around the other stuff we had scheduled, spring break, trips, whatnot. It was only about 2 weeks after that that I realized that they were due to hatch just before Easter. And lo and behold, we have easter chicks. My little incubator holds 7 eggs, so that’s how many we put in, and all 7 of them hatched!
This picture is terrible, because I forgot to switch the settings from outside to inside, but it’s the better of the two I managed to get before I started to fear for the chick’s well-being.
Because then the chick started trying to climb up to SmallKid’s face and tickling her and she started to really try to hold on.
BigKid is pretty excited as well. There’s a chance we might get to take them in to show off to her class, which would be pretty neat.
