Chicks? In November?

That would be a solid *maybe.*
 
We do have a hen who has been sitting on eggs now for 20 days.  it takes 21 days to hatch them.
 
But it has been cold.  Very cold some nights.  We even had snow at one point!

 

So it is a wait and see kind of thing.
 
I have tried to tell the girls not to count their chickens before they are hatched...but I don't think they are really listening...
 

 
They have been very busy with chick preparations today...getting the cage ready inside.  Setting up their food.  Their water, the electrolytes in the water.  Making sure the heat lamp works.  Getting cardboard put around the cage so that they won't have any drafts coming into the cage...
 
Time will tell if we will have chicks or not...
