There’s 2 hens and a drake there.
They’re young yet, being a Sept. 2019 hatch.
But, in the next month or two, the hens will start to lay and hopefully the drake will get to work doing what drakes do best.
He’s got a total of 6 hens to service and I’m hoping her does that.
I want these girls to give me ducklings…many, many ducklings.
Yeah the box is huge.
The incubator is huge.
It can hold 56 chicken eggs, so I shoulda realized how huge it was gonna be.
I have a spot for it, as well as the first (smaller) incubator.
This year‘s hatching is about to start!
After a week of frustration (trying not to be frustrated) of no new news on the tracking for my incubator, a friend mentioned to check with our local post office…because the courier doesn’t ship outside of the big city, but hands parcels off to Canada Post.
My incubator is sitting at our local post office.
So, Monday I get to go pick it up.
And then, March 1st, I set my first round of eggs…
There will be so many chicks!
15 chirp chirps
Like this ^^^ but so many more.
I’m looking forward to it.
We’re at the point in the cycle of seasons where the urge to get things going for the coming spring is soooo strong.
And yet, we know that it’s just a wee bit too soon.
Napping in the sunshine is the way to go.
At least until March 1st.
Then it begins!
Today it’s cool and dreary.
Not really cold.
We’ve been having above normal temperatures for a little while. It’s been nice, for sure.
But I’m missing the sunshine…and photos in the sun.
So this image is food for the Spirit.

Sable at sunrise is the perfect balm for a sun deprived soul.
