My Dad raises chickens and sells farm fresh eggs. He has so many customers, that his supply does not keep up with his demand. It could be that they are so delicious … which they are! But, he only sells them for $1 a dozen. This is a hobby for him, not a money maker. So, he is totally content.
Previously, he has gotten his babies from other chicken ranchers and raised them up from chicks. However, he recently decided to buy an incubator. We thought he was crazy! But, we have all soooo enjoyed watching these eggs …
from the time they layed totally lifeless in the incubator
until the time they began rolling around in the incubator, unable to see what stirred within the shell
until the time we watched a chicken peck a small hole in his (or her) shell
to the time we watched as a tiny chick cracked out of it’s shell
(The tiny one on the bottom just popped out of his shell)
until the time they turned out to be these amazing little fluffy creatures!
25 eggs in, 17 chicks hatched. Some brown, some black, some yellow!
How simply amazing!
All I can say is that our God is an awesome God!!
