New Adventure!!!

Here we go again! We were at the farm store here in our little town and they will be getting chicks in next weekend for sale, and dh and me talked about it all, and we would like around 20 more chicks. Well, at $3 each for the chicks we’d be spending $60. Then we spotted the incubators!!! $59! OMG, the discussions we have in the farm store. Someone should follow us and video it all, because even I find it hilarious! So we got the incubator and two bags of chick starter feed, instead of waiting til next week to get chicks.

Now we’ve been playing with the incubator for three days, trying to get the temp just right keeping the humidity up in it. Collecting the eggs from the chickens has taken on a whole new excitement. We have to store them pointy end down, and then you have to tip the carton side to side at least once maybe twice a day, so the yoke doesn’t stick to the membrane. Tomorrow we will have probably 18-20ish eggs from our 7 chickens and we’re going to start incubating them! Our next big worry is going to be in 21-ish days keeping the cats from wanting to tear open the incubator, and get at the chicks. Peep peep peep!

So, I’ve been watching videos, and wondering if we can do this. I’m sure we can, and even if we have just a 50% hatch rate, for now, I am going to call it a success!!!!Β  And this flock will be dubbed the Valentine Crew! The original chickens and rooster we have, we got last year on Memorial Day! So, I see a theme here just having holiday birds. Next up St Patrick’s day!!! πŸ˜€ That’s like 10 days after this first batches hatch day! I really really want to do a 4th of July batch also! We’ll call them the Firecracker Crew! πŸ˜€

I am soooo excited! Pictures soon!
