Wishin', hopin', thinkin', prayin'...

Well, not really.

But nothing is happening with the baby chicks. We keep hoping that something is going on inside those egg shells, but they're now almost a week overdue.

One hen keeps sitting there though. She's determined to be a mother, I guess. The other seems to have given up.

We started out with 17 eggs and we are down to 7 or 8. The reason being that last week, each time one of us would go check on them, a couple eggs would be busted. That went on for a few days.

My theory about that is the hen could tell that those eggs weren't fertilized and were going bad. So to make more room for the 'good' ones, she disposed of them.

No wonder the saying goes: Don't count your chickens before they hatch. ; )
