HERE IS NUMBER 9

Can you tell that I have Spring Fever? This is a hatching I caught on camera last year. Sorry it is dark but it was difficult filming into the incubator. I'm ready for some new baby chicks this year!

  2. Yes, and those babies have to fight their way into life by hatching out of the egg. I read a story a while back that said that those chicks that break thru survive longer than those that don't....so is the way of life.

  3. 19 out of 22 in the incubator hatched. Those that have not survived the year were taken by predators. After they manage to break open the shell and emerge, they are exhaused for a good while before they get up and move around.
