* Update *
We now have 6 healthy baby chicks. And they are ADORABLE! Elias loves to feed and water them. It has been a lot of fun. Now we are hatching Canada Geese eggs. A Canada Goose mother was killed yesterday and the nest of eggs was brought to my house. They are now incubating.
Our first two chicks! Hatched May 7th 2009~
Elias wants to crack all the eggs open and "get em out".
There are still several cracking their way out!
More pics to come.

We (momma and elias) are incubating chicken eggs.
They are due to hatch May 6th.... aka Wednesday! We have been waiting patiently for almost 3 weeks (chicken gestation time). Turning the eggs several time daily, monitoring the tempeture and humidity. Hopefully our efforts will bring us some good hens (but mostly a great learning experience).
So, soon we will have 7...
So I need help! Naming my fine ladies.
Our grown hens are named:
And we can't forget those who have died. RIP Ladies:
Susan B. Anthony (My favorite hen)
Joan of Arc
So, I am taking nominations for names. Please post suggestions or email them to me.
My first hatch will be Sojourner Truth
The down side of hatching our own eggs is that we may get some roosters. Not sure what I am going to do with them. I only keep girls. Any one want roosters?
