Our First Time Hatching Chicks
In our second year of operation, we continue to enjoy “firsts” on the farm. This spring, one of the most enjoyable was hatching our own chicks.
Last year on a whim, we added three Americauna chicks from the local feed store to our flock. And they grew into roosters.
I (Kristina) am not a big fan of roosters. They can be a little rougher with my hens than I would like. But, Caleb really wanted to hatch our own eggs. After weeks of me shaking my head every time I passed the incubator, I have to admit that I’m glad we did it!
