The First Chick of 2022

On Easter Sunday I thought I heard a tiny alarm going off in the dining room. It turned out it was the first chick of 2022 hatching in the incubator. That was a surprise!

I was sure I had another week. I had to run out to the livestock shed and collect all the materials I would need. Pine shavings, heat lamp, electrolyte solution, waterer, feeder, medicated feed, a box, and little dome that it could hide under.

Who knows how long until the rest of the eggs hatch. I have candled them all and they are full. Only time can tell.

I will start up a new batch with the ducks. Problem is, I don’t know which eggs are the Saxony and which eggs are the Rouen. Life is an adventure, I guess.
