Well this winter was the first time I didn't hatch chicks. It was tough to support my bird's feed bill this way. Usually the chicks bring in some income to cover the food. Anyway, it is the beginning of the year and I have started hatching again! I have had 2 batches of chicks hatch already and the third is hatching as I type. They are so cute and I forget how small! Angew grocery, near my house has been selling my chicks for the last 2 weeks. It is so cool!
