ROCKING ROLLING PEEPING
Our incubating chicks were due to debut yesterday. We checked all day, even knowing that a watched pot never boils. I went to bed last night and two of the eggs were rocking. I just knew there would be at least two chicks this morning. I dreamed all night of delivering chicks of all sizes and colors. Alas, this morning there are no hatched chicks. However, now I can hear them peeping. I never dreamed we would hear them before we could see them. The eggs are moving and the chicks are peeping. Surely we are about to see them break through the shells. It is an exciting event and I have two cameras ready.
