CHICKS ARRIVED ON MOTHER'S DAY 2015

Well the baby chicks were born on Mother's Day! I was SO eggcited!  LOL. Out of the 12 we had in the incubator - 8 hatched so from what I read that was pretty average. See photos below - the chicks are all cute and fluffy right now.

The chicks are all snug as a bug under the heat lamp in their new home separated from the big chickens. Dipped each of their beaks in water and food and they went to town eating and drinking. So far so good.

It's been a couple of crazy days around here. As the eggs were hatching we also had our bees swarming. That story will be in my next post! Let's just say we spent a good portion of the day trapping swarms.

Life is GOOD!
