The Eggs have hatched!!

The eggs have hatched into cute little chicks!!! The first three hatched VERY early Saturday morning, and two more hatched late Saturday night. So all together we have five chicks. We don't think anymore are going to hatch. Four chicks are yellow and one is brown.~Ashley~

The first egg is getting ready to hatch
The two chicks are sleeping. So cute!
The chicks look like they are kissing!
This is the brooder box. It has a light to keep the chicks warm, a water and food bowl, and some of dads old shirts.
We dipped the chick's beak into the water so he would know how to drink.
Sammy is VERY interested in the chicks. He just sits there  and watches them all day.

About two weeks ago we picked up a dozen fertilized eggs(there are REAL chicks in there)!! We also rented an  incubator so the little chicks can grow!! It takes about 21 days after you put them in the incubator for them to hatch. So that means they will hatch around friday! Then I will post another blog about the hatched chicks!! I can't wait!! ~ Ashley

We are learning about how to take care of the eggs.
