New Chicks and New Bunny Pics

The eggs in the incubator are starting to hatch! So far it's going MUCH better than the last time (knock on wood). The fan I installed really helps keep the temperatures steady!

So far there are about 6-8 chicks hatched and more on the way!

See the chick's beak in the egg?

This poor chick is resting. It's hard work hatching!

I can't wait see how many are there when I get home!
And the latest pics of the baby bunnies.... This is probably the last time I'll show you, since we scared the 2 babies (I wonder what happened to the others?).
Just after I snapped this pic they darted out of the nest!

Devin grabbed one and I grabbed the other. His had 2 ticks in one ear so we pulled those off.

Then we quickly put them back in the nest, covered them up, and I held my hand over them so they'd calm down and not dart out again. As soon as they calmed down I lifted my hand and we walked away.
I cannot believe how fast they've grown!!! What are they, about 2 weeks old?!!

You look like you are getting a great hatchout!!! I love that they are all different colors! Sigh... I miss mine being small. Congrats Katie!! The bunnies are so darned cute!! You and Devin did a great job catching them, de-lousing them, and then putting them back! I bet it was such fun holding them. I am sorry that something ate the others. Nature is a tough cookie for sure. What fun you have in your farm life! Loving hugs, Momma

I've got a lazy hen sitting on my eggs. Maybe I need to get an incubator next year. Going on the wish list.

Very nice Katie. I love seeing the chickens hatching. And I can't believe you have the bunnies right there. :-)
