Baby Chicks

Our 62 baby chicks will be shipped on May 7, when they are a day old. We ordered them from Cackle Hatchery in Lebanon, MO.

After a fertilized egg is laid, it takes 21 days for the chick to mature inside the egg. The eggs that hold our baby chicks were probably laid on Sunday.

Here's a website with the chick lifecycle.

According to this website, the chicks' hearts started beating yesterday. Today, the legs, wings and beak will start forming.

Oh, the wonder of life.
