3 chicks hatched
The news from home is that three of the 10 eggs have hatched. I am hoping that today, a few more will hatch though time is running out. 3 out of 10 is better than nothing however but it is not the 10 we were hoping for. The next job for the incubator is to hatch some quail eggs which I still need to order. We will need to look again at ordering more hatching hen eggs however. And we will need to consider buying more point-of-lay birds. Ideally, I want us to have 40 laying hens. We have the capacity for more than that in the current henhouses so space is not a problem.
