New Batch Of Freshly Hatched Chicks

Second batch of chicks are taking their time hatching. There are always early birds. The two I’m posting are the first to hatch. In this picture I have a Cuckoo Marans and a Cochin Bantam cross Cuckoo Marans. I always get tired during hatching even through there is very little physical work. Plus I stayed up and partied as the moon went through its eclipse. What a blast staying up until midnight, hanging out with my husband drinking coffee together and watching the stars and moon. unfortunately we did not get to see the dark phase when the moon turns blood color. Clouds were coming and going here in Oregon. At least we could watch the first two phases. I have fifty eggs hatching this evening and tomorrow.

I love spring!
