First Brood in the Incubator

And we’re off!  The first brood of Silver Ameraucana eggs went in the incubator on 4/1.  I expect chicks to start hatching on 4/20, or even a bit earlier.  These Silvers always seem to start a day early.  Can hardly wait for the first little peepers!  Chick hatching season is one of my favorite times.

Here are some of the moms and dads of this year’s eggs.  There are a total of 20 hens and 3 roosters in my breeding flock.  Fingers crossed that I get some nice babies from these birds.
