Chicken Trivia

Amerucana eggs in the incubator.
Did you know that Mama Chickens turn the eggs their sittin' on at least 50 times in one day so that the embryo doesn't stick to the shell.

I am WAY TOO busy to even attempt that! But I do turn them every morning and again in the evening.

I love the olive colored eggs. Those are 1/2 Amerucana
This batch was started on Sunday March 11th. It takes 21 days for them to hatch. So that means on April 1st they should start to hatch.

Amerucana chickens also called "Easter Eggers" since they lay a blue tinged and pale pink egg.
For real!!
