I finally hatched out 9 chicks yesterday out of a batch of 14 mutt eggs. I'm super happy because this is my 4th try this year. Everyone is doing fine. They hatched yesterday and I put them under my broody cuckoo maran early, early this morning way before daylight. When I checked on them at 8 a.m., she is still sitting on the nest with all these little tiny heads popping out. She seems happy and so do they. And my DH is super happy that I'm not going to try incubating any more eggs this year!
