Adorable Chicks at My Farm

It’s always such a joy to see the animals at my farm thriving - they are all so beautiful, so curious, and so friendly.

If you follow my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, you may have seen photos of my newest residents - 20-chicks that recently hatched in my Winter House kitchen. The peeps hatched in a special incubator from Brinsea, a leading manufacturer of egg incubators, hatchers and brooders for poultry, waterfowl and other birds. The chicken eggs are placed into the incubator the day they are laid. They are kept at the ideal temperature of 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit for 21-days until they hatch. It's exciting to see every chick emerge and grow.

Enjoy these photos.
