With the excitement of starting up the incubators for the years comes the forgotten knowledge of what the 3 days of hatching is really like…
Once the first chirp starts, there’s excitement.
Yay, we’ve got chicks!
But then…as more come out of their shells, the *loud* chirping starts.
And the scrabbling, jim jamming around…at all hours.
Then, throw in Daisy Mae, who has to tell me she can hear the chicks in the incubators.
Yes cat, I am aware that there’s birds chirping in the house.
So here we are on day 2 of hatching, running low on sleep, just waiting for tomorrow morning when we can take aaaaaallllll da little birbs out to the brooder and start again.
And so it will go, every 3 weeks from now until the beginning of July.
