Today is the day.
Today is the day i stopped staring at this monstrosity and put it work.
Ever since we got it about a week ago, i have been reading manuals and forums and asking repetitive questions and collecting eggs and thinking and re-thinking my plan.
But today became the day that i put this fancy styrofoam thingy to the test.
Will it really make chickies?
Here are the the little eggs.
Forty-eight precious pieces of delectable hen-fruit.
Carefully placed inside this styrofoam robot mother hen.
And now, i'm their mama.
Oh, Lord let 'em do good! It's such an amazing miracle that with a little heat and humidity, God turns a yolk and a white into a living, breathing, cheeping, being - that i am absolutely befuddled that i could have anything at all to do with that.
Three weeks 'til hatch. I hope i sleep.
