Here’s a bonus video for this today. In response to Christy Jordan’s QOTW – “What was the first thing you saved for?”
Today I’m addressing something that has been bugging me about some of the homesteading channels I have been watching lately.
I’m getting started on that secret project…our homestead is growing! And I was so excited to get up one morning and see a chick starting to hatch. I grabbed my camera and got it on video!
In today’s episode, there were chicks hatching here, chicks hatching there, chicks hatching everywhere!
Did you know that you can see a chick inside the egg? Watch and see as I’m candling eggs in this video.
We have our very first hatched chicks on the homestead! Exciting things are happening around here.
How can you tell if an egg is still good or it has gone bad? There’s a simple test you can do that takes seconds. See it in this episode. There was also a trip to the veterinarian, because little Schatze was sick.
We have a new addition to our homestead. The family just keeps growing!
We had some unwelcome visitors to the homestead, and how’s my broody hen doing?
I made another tiny modification to the chicken coop, as well as helped out my broody hen. Then man! The story I would have had, if only.
