    I've had one baby hatch a few minutes ago in one of the bators that lost it's power and temp. It didn't have a date on it, it was one I had to take out from under a hen outside. A larger hen was sitting little Charlotte's eggs and squashing them, so they were farther along than the other eggs in there.
    Also had a little one hatch from one of the hens that was left on my porch in December. It's a little Turken, daddy was a Turken and momma is either Penny a Barred Rock or one of the big Cochin sisters, or the RIR hen.

    I couldn't get a good pic of the Turken's face, it has war paint! White stripes under both eyes and on the bottom of the jaw line.

    At least the one made it, Charlotte's from yesterday, now let's hope for the rest and for the quail and ducks.
