Chicks is Chippin', Eggs is Pippin'
Yeah, the kids brought their incubator down here after a test run up at Jade's grandparents' house. It has been running in the dining room for a while or so.
Late last week chickies began to peck and pick their way out of their shells. These so far are mottled, blue, and black standard cochins.
They are also crazy cute.
However, after having raised many hatches of chicks and many store bought chicks on the porch down in the village, I am utterly attuned to the distress calls of chicks.
And every single one cheeps stridently for a while after it exits it's ovoid enclosure......
Yup, I been noticing.....
