The final chick count: 7 healthy babies! Not the best hatch rate (I set 22 eggs), but it was my first time incubating, so I'm just happy I got any at all! The babies ended up hatching early. A couple hatched Tuesday night, and the rest hatched Wednesday.
I got a pretty good assortment of chicks.
This one is really pretty...yellow and gray mix. I wonder what it will look like when it's fully grown.
And this one. I have to admit, I'm kinda freaked out by the brown face. I'm not sure why it freaks me out, it just does.
The black one on the right is the smallest. I think it might be a bantam cross. It is LOUD. The sucker never stops peeping. Last night I put it in my sports bra to keep it quiet. Don't judge me. It worked.
My mom was thinking about taking a couple home, but I was kind of attached since I only got 7 to hatch. So, I gave her the next best thing. I sent her home with my incubator and some chicken eggs so she can hatch her own! :-)
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I'm still recovering from our wonderful holiday, so I'll post about it another night! Right now I'm playing catch-up for the craft show on Saturday!
