Brand New Baby Chicks!
in Europe, "slow television" is a popular thing to watch. You can google it if you like to see what that's all about. However, when I ought to have been making pickles, or vacuuming up dog fluff everywhere, or tidying up or listing things for sale or working in the garden, I spent a good three hours just watching this little piece of shell pulse. then I went to bed around 1 AM! Silly.
Next morning, I was up and outside checking on it again even before showering and properly starting my day!
There was more going on this time.
Remember the big round incubator at the Science Centre in Ottawa? It looked like a spaceship. It was great to see fluffy little chicks and lots of eggs. We never seemed to be there to actually see any real hatching though.
Oh, and the last time we were at the Science Centre, there was no more incubator! So sad. It seems that modern technology is more important than chicks hatching. I prefer the chickens!
Now, back to work!
