Have you ever had fresh eggs? Laid that morning- ready to be eaten? If your answer is yes, you know that they are way different than those you buy at the store. The flavor- the color- just incredible.
Heather and I decided it would be a good idea to have fresh eggs- from our very own chickens- right in our own backyard.
So, Just over three weeks ago Heather and Jenna went out to San Marcos to get some fertalized chicken eggs… we placed a dozen of them in an incubator and waited patiently for 3 weeks…
Meanwhile, we built a coop for them to live- once they grew up to be big and strong.
And- right on time- at 21 days exactly- as I was walking by the incubator I saw a little chick peeping his cute little head through his eggshell. I screamed, “Heather, Heather- wake up! The first chick is hatching!”
It was so exciting. When I got home from work that day, 2 others had joined her. We left them in the incubator for 24 hours while they wobbled around, cuddled with one another, and developed their pecking order. They are so adorable- fluffy and small- and confused in this new world they just entered!
We have chicks!!! YAYY!!!
