Around 5:00 or 5:15 AM on todays date we hatched our first baby chick. :clap: Ds has not seen it yet since he is still asleep. I am hoping that he gets to see a few of them actually hatch.

I was up till about 1:30 AM waiting to see if any other eggs would pip, but I finally had to go to bed on to have hubby wake me around 5:30 AM and tell me to follow him, I just knew what was up. :D

Recorded the 2nd chick and ds is now watching the third chick live! :clap: He was so excited when he got up and I just pointed to the incubator. He is one happy kid right now. :D

No, don't say no.... just think of the learning opportunities! Think of the experiences your children will have... just THINK how COOL it would be to be able to make breakfast with eggs from your own chickens!! (I want some, and I'm not saying no, but so far, I haven't convinced DH... first step though, will to be to convince the landlord... then dh... I think the landlord will be easier to convince than dh! :lol: )

We now have 10 chicks. :eek:

Yeah I have to re-visit my chicken coop and run size. :lol:

Of course some of them may be roos, so I will have to find homes for them.
