    They hacthed, They made it through IKE... we had no power for 8 days but ran a generator all day and shut it off at night. They started hatching on day 23, i thought it would have taken longer. but there here.


    13 eggs and i have 6 chicks right now, we will wait and see if anymore come out.

    Congrats! As fragile as they are they can also be very resilient.

    AWWWWW so cute. Let me get this straight, they cooled down at night? For how many nights? This is amazing to me that they hatched at all.

    Umm i got them from my uncle and what i saw that he had and what he told me he had, Was RIRs and white leghorns, and some game birds, but i got these out of the RIR and white leghorns. So i really dont know what type these are. But i will post pics when they get bigger.
