Little Chicks Coming Soon . . .

Leah has been incubating about forty of our chicken eggs for awhile, and they are due to hatch in just a few days! She has been carefully monitoring the humidity, turning the eggs twice a day, regulating the temperature, and candling some of the eggs from time to time as well. About a week ago, she and I candled all of the eggs together sorting out 'bad' ones from viable ones, and it was so neat to see the little chicks developing inside most of them!


And now we're anticipating having little chicks again . . .


Only a few more days!


If you haven't seen it yet, there is a post below this one about a small blogging change. :)
