I have been pondering on what to do for science this year and thanks to our friends, our family will be raising chickens from eggs. We found out a couple of days ago that our friends have been putting aside some fertilized chicken eggs for us. Yesterday we bought an incubator and today it is holding 12 chicken eggs.
For the next 21 days, Nick and Sam will be turning these eggs 2-3 times a day. If all goes well, the chicks will hatch on or around the kids' birthdays.
In the meantime, the chicken coop will be completed as we wait patiently for the grand arrival.
