This weekend I have new babies. Three of the four hens I had setting have hatched or are hatching. The first one I set with ten eggs revealed to me this morning eight multi-colored babies that are adorable.
The second hen revealed one last night but Mom won’t move off of them this morning so I can get pictures of them. She had seven eggs under her and I can’t wait to see how many hatch. Here she is being very protective. I’m sure she hasn’t moved off of them because more are trying to hatch. Hens usually don’t come off the brooding nest until the last one that’s going to hatch comes out of the shell.
The third hen has 14 eggs under her and I did find one hatched egg shell in front of her this morning but I don’t expect to see the babies until probably tomorrow.
More updates and pictures will be revealed in the coming days. Aren’t they adorable!!
These are their amorous and proud daddie, Elvis and Romeo!!
Back in a few days with updates!! 😉
