The eggs I put in the incubator 21 days ago hatched today!
This little peeper was the first to emerge and then it helped the next two free themselves from their shells.
This is the first time I have ever seen a chick hatch, the miracle of life takes my breath away.
So far four of the seven eggs put in the incubator have hatched. I moved the chicks to a brooder I rigged and put the two eggs from the hillbilly incubator into the real incubator. Hopefully the increased humidity will help them hatch if they are still alive.
This video is a little long but it shows the peeper breaking free of its shell.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
