Chicken Incubation and Hatching

Posted by Razzle Dazzle Farm on February 2, 2012 at 1:30 PM


Acquired some fertilized eggs



 Set up the baby chicken nursery

 

Wait 21 days...this was the perfect stormy day to hatch some baby chicks hatch!!!



 I peeked into the incubator to see if the eggs had moved at all. 
You see that hole in the egg to the right?
That's the beginning of the hatch!
 When I put my ear up to the incubator I could hear peeping! 
That "B" on that eggshell means that egg contains Buff Orphington chick. 



The first baby chick hatches

Made the baby chicks some hats to wear while waiting for them to all finish hatching.



24 hours and still chicks are still hatching. I had no idea it would take this long.
