Hard part of hatching

is losing them when they were so close to hatching!

The four eggs we had in the incubator died.

We put 16 more eggs in the incubator and hatch day is October 19th.

Out of this hatch only two made it. Both pipped at the wrong end and had to be helped after 24 hours of trying to hatch on their own.

We are having babies

well not us specifically but Mr. Rooster and the girls! We put in four eggs from our flock and four eggs from the neighbor. So far every egg is progressing and growing a chick!

We candled yesterday and this is what a fertilized egg that is starting to grow a chick looks like.

We also have two double yolk ones. Usually double yolk (twins) eggs either stop developing on or around day 10 or do not survive the hatch.
