Go Chicken Scratch Mutts!! WOo hoo!
|Four little chicken blobs|
|The fifth little chicken blob--seemingly being anti-social|
Out of the other 3 mutts, two look just like Persnickety, and one is red. With a beard. I have no idea what that's about. It's going to be interesting to see how that one turns out.
They come home tomorrow. All in all, I think the kids had a great experience with it--they were a little disappointed at the low hatch rate, but in truth, the incubator went unattended over the weekends, and it did go dry a couple of times. On top of that, I couldn't vouch for the health of anyone's flock other than my own. But try explaining that to a large group of 10 year olds. Either way, I hope they learned a lot. As for me, I learned that home grown is the best way to go. I've got some fertile chickens out thar!
