Hatching your own chicks is fun and exciting!
We had just moved to a 97 -acre farm and had 19 chicken eggs that hatched the day we moved in! The day the chicks were going to hatch, was the day Mom was gone on a Mom’s retreat . Dad had to take of a house with his four wild children, 19 hatching eggs, and take care of a house full of boxes to be unpacked- WITHOUT Mom’s HELP! One chick that hatched was yellow, and James my oldest brother, named it Goldilocks. One chick was fast to get out of her shell; I named her Speedy. One use the broken egg shells to protect herself from the fights between the chicks my youngest sister, named it Bumdrees. We kept 8 out of the chicks that became our first flock.
