    SO EXCITED today! [​IMG] I wasn't very hopeful about the eggs under my 2 broody Orpingtons. I was hoping they were going to hatch yesterday and there was no chipping, nothing.

    Well, today at 1.30pm, I lifted the skirt of Milly to see 2 eggs with tiny cracks on them. I checked now (4.30pm) and one baby has been born!. [​IMG]
