Tonight, four freshly hatched chicks are stumbling around in the incubator, eyes barely opened, collapsing in exhaustion every couple of seconds. It’s incredible that they have any energy to move around at all, considering the effort required to free themselves from their cramped quarters.
It’s remarkable to think that three short weeks ago, these were nothing but a basket of eggs out of our chicken coop. Although most of them are fertilized, it is impossible to tell by looking at them – on the outside or the inside. What a transformation they have undergone!
I hope I never stop being amazed by these tiny feathered creatures and the miracle of life they represent!
