    This is my first hatch! I have 8 little eggs from my little mixed breed hens. The hens arestill a mystery to me as to what the are a cross with but I'm thinking leghorn/ cochin maybe. Well anyway they were bred to a full breed leghorn rooster! I can't wait to see what the little ones will look like! I candled right before lockdown and saw movement In all 8. I'm so nervous!

    I am in lockdown myself and it is killing me. I keep having an excuse to walk by and check them. Nothing yet, it is like a watched pot. I don't want to miss the start. Another night of waking up a few times to check....[​IMG]

    Good luck!

    They will be cute!
