Hatching an online shop bought egg during lockdown.
by Polly Ciolli
I could not believe my eyes when the Ocado blue shelled egg from the online shop began to develop into a chick. I started it off in the incubator then luckily my hen went broody so I am three days away hopefully from a Royal Legbar chick?
My kids incubated and hatched 10 chicks!

Of course during a pandemic, what better schooling idea than getting fertile eggs and hatching a baby chicks! So that what we did.
My 11 year old took it head on and has really learned sooo much about the process and chickens in general. Her sister and brother were helpful too, encouraging those babies to come out!
We even had to save a baby chick who was stuck in her shell and she had a crooked foot but is now a perfectly healthy chicken.
Now we have 10 beautiful chickens they are so proud of and love ❤️.
