chicks hatching

i hear peeping.  anyone who knows me knows i'm not the happy dance type, but it's pretty dang cool.  pictures when i have them.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Little chicks are addictive, then reality sets in - full grown chickens.

Hey Kathy,

Keep a look out for a medium size box on your porch. I have two roosters we'll be sending your way. btw, don't tell Diane.

no thanks GSF.  i think my march batch has a rooster.  i catch him/her every day and haul it around with me.  if it's mean, it goes. 

on the + side, i have found that selling fertilized eggs is more profitable than selling the same eggs for eating.  go figure......

A friend of mine had a duck that he couldn't keep off of the eggs. So he ask me for a dozen fertilized eggs and wal-la, now he has a bunch of baby chickens following a duck around. Now that's what you call a Kodak moment!

I haven't spoken to him in a while, I wonder if the mama duck tried to get them to go in the pond?
