You Tube Hatching

Watch one of our chicks hatching on You Tube. Here's the link:
Called Easter Chick Hatching from Kramerrooster

What's on the other side of the fence anyway?

Out for a stroll!

This is why we do this! Look at these beautiful kids and their smiles! Connor really took on the responsibilities of hatching out the chicks this year. From the beginning to end. He really wants to carry on this special tradition for his children!

Can I get a ride to the feed store?

Ready for my close up!

These 3 are waiting for the rest to arrive!

Connor is so excited about the chicks! It was a long night.
The "peeping" started around 2am. After the first couple chicks
arrive and start "peeping" the rest work even harder to get out of
their shells.
Hhmmm, aren't we all working hard to come out of our shells! ha ha
Keep Smiling! Robin

On my way out!!

Chick Facts: when the chick is pecking it's way out of the egg
it turns it's little body around and around inside the egg. This is
how it breaks off it's little umbilical cord. So we never assist
the chicks when they are arriving. We let nature do
it's thing. Other wise we could actually hurt the chick or worse.
There's a little useful tid bit for you!
