    Congrats on your sucxessful hatch. What breeds did you get from speckledhen? Last December I had a wonderful hatch of blue amerauacanas and blue orpingtons from her. Can't wait to see the video.

    Very cool! I know with my babies I would put on hand in the brooder with food in it and tapped it like a mama hen then I called chick chick now they come when I call them outside.
