Hatching new excitement

We are up to something exciting around here! One of the greatest aspects of living out in the country is that we are able to do some interesting experiments. Not only are we watching our tadpoles turn into frogs, our seeds grow into plants but now, we are watching eggs become chicks.

Our kind neighbor let us borrow their incubator to harvest chicken eggs. We have started with six eggs (two more came after I took this photo). They are a mix between Ameraucana and Road Island Reds. This week they will be bringing fertile eggs by daily for us to put into the incubator and watch for twenty-one days. We have marked each egg with the date so that we can count down and observe their progress. We have arranged it so that most of the chickens will hatch on a weekday while the children are here.  There is so much excitement that surrounds this experience. This is one beautiful thing.
