It's That Time of Year Again!

The time when things wake up.....
The time when the sky has that beautiful "blue after the spring rain" color.....
(That house is the house I grew up in. No one lives there now but I have so many wonderful memories from there.)
The time when new things are born and old things find new life.....
The time when my boys get really excited about that big Styrofoam box I bring down from upstairs.
This one.....
You can tell it's been used a few times. My mom used it for raising Pharaoh quail until she gave it to me when we moved out here to the farm.
It's that time when we set our "Easter Eggs!
We even have some "real" Easter eggs from our Easter Egger hens in there this year and a few Bootsie eggs too...
So goodnight, sleep tight and stay warm little eggs (but not too warm...and not too cold about 100 degrees and just keep it there!)
In 21 days, we'll have new babies like these from last year.....
Then I'll be looking for people who need some roosters!!

How do you sex them when they are just little chicks? or do you have to wait til they are older?

Hi Mike, I wait until they are older. There probably is a way to sex them when they are little but I've never done it.

Your eggs look lovely! Beautiful pictures! And btw, I recieved the candle... Thanks again! I'm jealous of your early spring... although this week I noticed the peonies starting to peep up from the ground! Hooray!! :-)

I have never seen this type of incubator before. It would be neat to watch the process. Keep us posted.

This makes me wish I had baby chicks coming this spring. Your pictures are wonderful.
