We are on Day 12 of our chicken hatching adventure! In the incubator are Icelandic Chicken eggs and Swedish Flower Hen eggs. These are both rare land race breeds that have only been in the US for a short time.

The Icelandics come from Lisa Richards at Mack Hill Farm and the Swedish Flower Hens come from Saskia Cacanindin at Blue House Farm.

Help us countdown the days until the eggs hatch!
