Our baby chicks are due this weekend and we're like anxious parents pacing up and down to the hen house to check for developments.
G thinks he heard faint cheeping on Wednesday evening which may well have been the chicks in the eggs (you can hear them for a couple of days before they're born).
Today Mummy hen kicked out a couple of eggs which we opened and had a quick biology lesson (very interesting but not for the squeamish). She obviously knows which ones are live and which ones aren't - by feel? who knows - these are her first babies so instinct is a marvellous thing.
We're hoping for 3 or 4 chicks (from 8 eggs). Watch this space!!
