Our first farm mishap'...
We had made it to day 18 for our first batch of hatching eggs, we had just put them on lock down when it happened. A winter storm blew into Virginia leaving over 10 inches of snow. This was the wet heavy snow that pulls down trees. Well, the worst hit after I had gotten to work. I work an hour from home, it took me over 2.5 hours to get in the office. I called home and my hubby announced we had lost power. I tried to get home but the roads were too bad. I stayed with my parents in town but my hubby, cat and dog were stranded at the house with no power or water (well). My hubby tried keeping the eggs warm with warm water bottles, hand Warner's and when that ran out, he put them in the bed to use his body heat. 34 hours later the power came back on. But we lost all the eggs in the first batch. We had some survivors in the second Batch. Keep your fingers crossed, they are supposed to hatch sometime this week.

We did get a rooster (bantam Cochin x leghorn) and two hens (1- bantam Phoenix x Egyptian, 1- standard Phoenix x Egyptian). They all love to cuddle and sleep on my lap. My city boy hubby calls me the chicken whisperer. Lol
