Yesterday was the first day of many to come that we get to experience one of lifes most precious mysteries. Birth! Early in the day we received a big surprise by seeing one of our many eggs due to begin hatching today, begin a day early. We were extremely busy preparing a friends home for a large Annual Memorial Day party by cleaning up from LAST YEARS party. LOL I am serious, tho. 😛
Upon our return home around 9pm the Silkie had hatched out! I placed the lone chick in the large brooder box and it happily chirpped like crazy for quite a while before settling down for the night. Another egg this morning has pipped it’s shell, so I hope we will get to see another hatch today. It is all very exciting!
