My Experience Hatching Chicken Eggs for the First Time

In February I made my very first chicken egg hatch. It actually went really well, considering how many things went wrong before I even got the eggs, and the fact that I was insanely uptight I was about it the entire time. Turns out, making life happen is a HUGE responsibility. Who knew?

Camping at Camas Lake
