I had a chick...

But then Marie eated it.

Yes, I was successful at breeding a chicken. I selected 3 Ancona eggs to put in my incubator, and after 3 weeks, one of them hatched! It was so cute. My very own home grown chicken!

And after 2 days, it went missing. All by its lonesome in the brooder pen in the barn, one of the kittens ate it.


So I will try again. And if I have a hatch, and no other baby birds in the barn, I will brood it in the house until it is big enough to go outside, away from the kitties.
