Cute Little Puff Balls

A few weeks ago I began saving eggs that I knew to be fresh and prepared them for hatching.
Then I dug out our incubator and cleaned it up.
We put in a digital thermometer and began recording the temperature; unfortunately after less than 3 hours the incubator began loosing heat and then we had no heat at all. I think the heating coil went out and so we are now without an incubator.
So, Pat called a friend who agreed to hatch our eggs in trade for half of the chicks.
And today we picked up some of the newly hatched baby chicks.
They are the cutest little puff balls!

Not me! I'm not missing holding the little buggers at ALL while I'm on vacation this week! hehe Nice save, though. Glad your friend was able to incubate them for you.

How neat! I bet it must be rewarding to know that you raised their mom/pop. How long will they have to be kept separate from the big hens?
