Chicks Are Hatching, We’re Starting Seeds and More! Week 11 2017

Oh dear… there was a whole lot of gobbling going on so we went to check it out. We discovered a flock of wild turkeys had come to visit and the next thing we know, the toms are mating with our turkey hens. Good or bad? We don’t know, what do you think?

It’s one of the funnest times of the year… seed planting time!

Just looking through our flock of chicks and trying to figure out the different breeds we have. We also show how we clean a chick with pasty butt.

The hatching has begun… so far the number has been disappointing but not surprising.

Today is the 18th day the eggs have been in the incubator so it’s time for lock down so the chicks have time to get into position to hatch. It’s also Dylan’s birthday so we spend the day celebrating.
