I guess this is a slow going process, I had no idea. Hatching out is a lot of work! We're still waiting on 5 out of 19, the rest are starting to peck out & hatch. The little "tink, tink, tink" sounds they make pecking inside "cracks" me up! If you listen close there's lots of bubbling and gurgling going on too, along with little chirps and peeps. The kids are enthralled. A. (2 yrs old) says "they're cookin!" Brett said "I think they will look like robins when they come out, all pokey."
Tonight Brett & I went to get chick feed. You'd think I was a city girl expecting to go in to Farm & Fleet and get a cat food sized bag of feed. Wrong, this is all they had. That oughta do it, you think?! They don't even need feed for the first 48 hrs. I bet I could really get into this if we lived in the country.
