We had a very successful hatch. Out of 39 eggs, 24 hatched, 2 of those didn’t live, and 3 of them went down the road for the neighbor’s great-granddaughter.
Add to them the 24 pullets ordered, plus the 2 extras they sent, plus the 1 free rare breed chick included and: hmmm . . . guess that makes 46 chicks!
It is amazing how the shipped chicks can survive the two-day trip in their little box right after they are hatched.
All arrived safely and are doing well.
Ok, 46 isn’t enough. We have to add 9 French Guinea keets.
Obviously, we have a very musical living room right now with 3 boxes set up as brooders.
