    My Banty RIR had been sitting on eggs, we candled on Sun and of the 6, 3 looked viable. Well on Tuesday the first hatched and the next 2 followed yesterday, I actually watched the third hatch it was great, Matilda just kinda lifted up and there was the baby hatching all the way out. I felt lucky to have seen that. So here are my new babies, Matilda is a awesome momma, this has been a great week.

    Thanks ya'll, I think they are pretty cute, daddy is a Australorp, so these guys are just mutts. They look alot bigger in the pics than they really are. They are about the size of one of those big bumblebees.
