It's go time

My EE /Dominique hen, elli, has a knack for finding ways out of her pen. She was getting out just about every day and couldn't find the place she got out of. She disappeared three weeks ago. I found her two weeks ago.... having a broody attack. She has elven eggs under her. And now they're hatching! big_smile.png
This one is kinda worrying with the dot of blood and all. Elli probably shifted and broke some of the shell and broke a blood vessel.

A pip

Elli drinking


I'm not currently living were the chickens are so I am here twildin' my thumbs. Its hard waiting to go back later. Wish elli luck!

Nine of the eggs have piped! when I moved her earlier she just sat there quietly while I checked the eggs. Now I have to start baby proofing a pen.
