I have 4 boys. When I had each of my boys, a few weeks after they were born, they would be in their own rooms, and in the middle of the night for feedings, I would walk to their rooms and feed them. I get up with them still, if they are sleep walking and can't find their way back to bed (yes! I DO have one of those!) I get up with them when they have bad dreams, or they wake up and just can't get to the bathroom fast enough!
As a mother, I think most of us would wake in the middle of the night for our children... But what about for THIS:
Yes, those are eggs. Chicken eggs. And I have been turning these babies every 6 hours. Including at 3:30 AM. This is my first try at incubating eggs, so we borrowed an incubator and don't have an automatic turner (which would be SO lovely...). So around December 7th, I hope to have me at least a few baby chicks! There are 3 different types too, so we shall see how they do!
Have you ever done this before? Please tell me I'm not the only crazy one! Crazy or not, I love our chickens!
