    I had 5 baby chicks hatch today! At least 2 of them were fathered by my NN rooster Pablo who died suddenly. You can tell that the black chick and the white chick on the bottom are both NN chicks. One of the eggs was a green egg from my black Easter Egger hen. The other eggs were small eggs from my Duccle's and possibly one from the medium size hen who set on the eggs. It looks like the other 3 chicks have feathered feet. I am so excited! I can't wait to see what they look like! I had not planned on having chicks, but when my big rooster died at the same time my hen went broody and the eggs most likely belonged to him, I let her keep the eggs. 5 out of 8 hatched.

    They are so cute! I love seeing them with their moms, starting to scratch and her showing them what to eat. I am trying to make friends with the mom by feeding her special treats. I want her to let me be near the little chicks so they'll be friendly when they grow up.
