    I was very surprised when one of my hens hatched out 3 healthy chicks a few days ago.

    I never thought they would hatch as the nest got badly flooded and the eggs were chilled and floating about under the half submerged hen!

    A week after that the hens managed to tip over her nest box and I found the eggs scattered over the coop floor - again cold.

    So these little ones have survived a flood, chilling, and a fall! I am so glad I did not throw the eggs away!
