They're eggs! For years I had planned on incubating eggs with the kids. This year, I figured that if I was going to talk so much about it, then I may as well just do it. In about another 2 weeks, some cute little peepers should be hatching from those shells.
We have 18 eggs in all, 6 of those pheasants. The pheasants take an extra 7 days to hatch, though. They must be more complex birds.
As you can see, the kids are very excited!
