Broody Progress Update

We are on day 13 of incubation!  Their scales and claws appear today.  Their heartbeat appeared on day 2 and on day 5 their gender was determined.

I am so ready for these little peepers to hatch!  I’ve been taking Honeybun on walks every day so can stretch, peck, eat, drink, bathe, poo, and in general cram all normal chicken behaviors into a 15 minute slot. 

Tomorrow the chicks will begin positioning for pipping (first break) the shell. 

Hatch day is the 19th!
