1st chick!

keeping chickie warm while we set up the chick box

snuggling into warm hands & wool

had to get the boys out of bed to see

Chickie spent the night alone in the box but by morning we had another chick hatched so now they are together.  The eggs are chipping & chirping!  It should be an exciting day seeing what happens.
The incubator & chick box are in J's office, or maybe his office is in the chicken coop?  Hope the phone meetings he has today aren't disturbed by the chirping.
The mama hens we left to brood should be hatching some soon .  I will enjoy observing her with them, as opposed to the incubator method.
