Saturday, we found this dove who had made a nest in our supply of twine in the barn. She sat patiently on her nest all day as we went about our business getting tools, and starting the tractor and lawn mower. She will be a mother soon.
We will keep an eye out for the babies. The incubation period for dove eggs is 17-18 days.
Back in the winter, we ordered baby chicks to be delivered on June first. The incubation period for chickens is 21 days. That means that our little chicks started their incubation at the hatchery on Saturday, as we discovered this dove.
We have to wait for some of the best things in life, it helps to have a lot of things that we are anticipating along the way.
