Raising Chickens

This year we decided that we were going to raise our own laying hens. It will be a great experience and a bit of a science project for Dinah and J3. We collected eggs on the week of Feb. 22, and set them in the incubator on Feb. 27th. So we are expecting them to hatch out on or around March 20th. I will be adding more blog posts as things develop. Enjoy these pictures of us collecting eggs, building our incubator, and candling the eggs at day #3. Also, check out the video after the pictures!

Here is a video we just made of candling an egg this evening. This is on Day 10 of the 21 day incubation. It’s hard to see in the beginning because of the poor video quality, but some veins are visible on the left side of the egg. Later in the video you can see the embryo more clearly and it is also moving around a lot.
