I have chicks due to hatch tomorrow. I've 3 eggs pipped since I came home from work today. One of them I'd marked with a ?, glad to see it's a good one. I can hear them peeping. One egg pipped on day 18, and I think it died the same day. I never heard it peep. There are: 2 Silky, 3 EE, & 4 Cochin mix. The one that didn't make it was a Cochin mix also.
I took all 6 of the chicks in the Brooder, along with the Cochin Momma that has adopted all of them along w/the Silky chick she hatched and moved them out to the chicken house. They got to go out in the yard and dig for bugs and run around like crazy. Fun to watch. First thing Momma did was take a dirt bath!
