12 hours old... Country Living at it's best...

chick at 12 hours

If you've missed my first two posts on my chicky... you might want to back up for a few minutes. This is my hatchling at around 12 hours old. Just a little tyke yet, but stretched out enough that I wonder how he/she ever fit in the shell in the first place. A master of his/her domain in the incubator this little one is trying desperately to explore the 'big beyond.'

Full of personality my little chick comes right up the the window when I pass by. It's everything in me to keep my hands out of the incubator and pick him up, but I'm trying to be patient.

Already tomorrow he'll be ready to move into his new bedroom and have some chow and water. It's amazing to me that a bird who's never been taught just 'knows' what food and water are for.

Anyways... the journey in country living continues. If you are looking at chickens in your future and need the land to support your dreams give me a call. I'd be happy to help you find the perfect landing spot for you and your family.

Your new chicky baby is adorable, Lindsey - what type of chickens do you raise?  Now going back to look at your other posts to see the earlier stages of this little gal/fella entering the world!

You know you will never be able to butcher that one for Sunday dinner, now, don't you?  Cute little guy.  But, they are loud, too.

Karen - We have a hodge podge of chickenry going on in the barn.... which is probably why our chicky is white and yellow and brown. :)

Ron - It might be harder, but if it's a rooster.... And, yes, he is loud. Crying for attention! Funny little guy.

Been quite a while since I dealt with chicks. They start out cute and then, well not so much!

Than - I might be weird, but I like the big birds too. I just don't hold them like we do with the little ones. They always entertain me though.

John - Thank you. Having fun recording the process. :) Cause with birds.... going from chick to adult goes really really fast.
