It’s wonderful to experience the arrival of new life on the farm! Last night our quail eggs started hatching! Today was the day to candle the chick eggs and put the good ones into lock-down. That is when you remove the egg turner, raise the humidity, and do not open again until they hatch and dry. In the lower two frames is what we look at when we candle. We see a bad egg on the left and a baby chick on the right.
It is so hard not to peak during the lock-down phase, but soon we will have new beautiful fluffs!!! Special thank you to Alchemist Farms for these exquisite quality hatching eggs! #olivecrushfarms #babychicks #quaileggs #chickeneggs #babyquail #colorfuleggs
