They’re getting more bold & adventurous when it comes to that door opening on the pen. They’re rushing the door to get out now & they’re exploring further from the door.

And the brooder box is ready & waiting right next to the incubator for any chicks that are able to hatch this week. This is the home stretch! Lockdown happens on Thursday & the incubator stays closed, the eggs stop turning & the humidity goes up (I bought a cold humidifier to set next to the incubator to make sure there’s enough humidity during the hatch so that the membranes & egg shells don’t shrink wrap onto the chicks). 21 days of incubation will be up on Sunday. The chicks can hatch anytime between now & 3-5 days after the Sunday. Fingers crossed!
