    So... I went this morning to pick up a few eggs and some baby showgirls....

    We ended up taking several hens off the nests and I rushed the eggs home to my incubators! One baby has already hatched! Woot!
    (The hens were having to be moved because of a fox that was slaughtering a friends showbirds!... Some of them stressed and wouldn't sit back on the eggs so we just removed all the eggs. Even from the ones still sitting.)

    60+ more eggs to watch and worry over since I have no idea when they will hatch!!

    Six new showgirls about 2 months old or so too!


    Heres the baby that hatched out one day ONE
