50 chicken eggs incubated. 48 chipped. 4 blonde, 10 brunette chicks hatched. 6 died first, then 6 more. 2 beat the odds. Named: Vim & Vigor.

    Your story reminds me of my youth; Mum often used to use the term ‘vim and vigor’ and Nan kept chooks. Your little tale of a couple of gutsy chicks is very nostalgic for me.

    I found your story sad – all those ones that didn’t make it.
