We will soon have baby chicks
Perhaps twin baby chicks from the same egg
This is a pretty cool and rare thing
I am sure most of you are like, what the heck is that !! This is a chicken egg that I pulled out of the incubator today to look at it more closely. It is called candling.
I have hatched hundreds of chicks here at the farm, so why is this one so special?
This egg has twins developing in it. How cool is that.
Its is also pretty scary as it is un heard of to hatch two chicks from one egg. This may go sour quick, but we think it is pretty cool they even made it this far !
I have 28 eggs in the incubator, and upon checking them this morning they were all moving around and doing well inside their eggs.
Tuesday is Lockdown day, that is tomorrow. I will lock down the incubator, no more peeking or taking eggs out. We will raise the humidity and we will wait and watch with anticipation to see when they start piping through their shells.
I will keep everyone posted on this adventure !
