I traded the golf ball under the pullet for the six eggs. We'll see how she does with them.........fl.gif

Here is Duva (Icelandic for Dove) hunkered down on her eggs ( and they are all still eggs, I hope I didn't kill the little pipper when I moved them last night) in her flower pot nest.

Well, I am now caught up and its time to go start getting the "Angry Birds / Angry Chickens" birthday set up. ya.gif

 

This morning I woke up to find last night's chick hatched and running laps around the hatcher. Such a cute little Showgirl, now to figure out what color it is.... looks either silver or blue.
