For the last few weeks I have been taking pictures of chickens as they developed. Today’s first picture was taken while the eggs were on lock down. That means that they are in this incubator until they hatch. It is nice and warm in there:
These eggs were put in the incubator on a Saturday and by Monday they had started to hatch. Here is one just out of it’s egg for a few minutes:
In this photo you can see that they don’t all hatch at once:
It takes a few days for all the eggs to hatch, and not all of them do. Being born is a tough process for a chicken, if for whatever reason something goes wrong the chicken will not make it. This particular group of chickens did well overall. I will be updating you as they grow, and they do grow fast!
As the photographer, the biggest challenge in getting these pictures is the glare of the window. I just had to move around and get the best angle I could.
