Life during the hatch

Our life during the hatch slowed down a bit as we took time to concentrate on watching the chicks hatch, and then care for the new babies. The process is fascinating and a bit addictive. We slowed down but haven’t stopped completely. The temperatures outside are on the rise, so outdoor playtime has loosened up and increased. Even Coco the kitten enjoyed some time outside this week, her first day of many to come exploring the great outdoors.

Everyone kept watch over the incubator: when I wasn’t there, the girls were peering in. When we walked away for a moment, each cat took a turn watching the eggs hatch.
