You did it!! 25+ days of toil, labor, and[yes] even a few tears. Many hours of research and diligent planning on your behalf as you collected the eggs from the hen-house and figured out whether you had yokers, quitters, or winners[and only thanks to you I now know what those three terms mean ;] and even hand turning the eggs when it was time to take the first round of little peeps off their turner! :) And then it happened, on the 23rd day when you had almost lost all hope of any hatchlings, there was a peep from the incubator as the first chick bravely ventured out of its shell! Then came another and within approximately 24 hours, you had a beautiful trio. ;) You have left this non-farmin’ sister quite astonished by your vast knowledge of the chick world! Congratulation on those little puff-balls of cuteness!!… I feel very much like a proud aunt. ;D So, without further ado, a video for you! ;)

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!”
