Watch Baby Chicks Hatch at Holbrook Farm Today!

Looking for something to do on this dreary rainy day?  We just received news that the baby chicks are hatching right now at Holbrook Farm!  Hatching lasts for approximately 24 hours so best to get over there soon.

Owner Jess Wong said she has about 42 eggs and eight of them have hatched so far, and another eight are cracking through, probably by hatched by tomorrow.




It’s important to keep the temperature at 99 degrees and to  monitor the humidity too, Wong said. She does this by putting a wet sponge in the incubator and also misting the eggs.  You also have to keep turning the eggs.

She said you can put the eggs in a dark room and shine a flashlight through the egg to try and see how many have an embryo, but they don’t do that and just put all the eggs in an incubator, which takes 21 days.  This is day 21!

We will post more photos as they hatch!

    – Bethel Advocate is kinda vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page
    and see how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.

    two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to say.
