    Okay i will tell you all the whole story! Me and my wonderful cousin went to check on the chickens the other day, when we gathered some eggs we didn't know that the hen was broody so we picked the eggs up carefully and all of the sudden one starts pippin! We found which one it was and I was holding it when it started hatching! I walked quickly with the egg to the incubator i sat it in there and it started hatching! It was about 2 a.m when me and my cousin went to bed, so we had to get up early to go check on it and sure enough Ellie (the chick) was crawling over the other eggs in the bator! We took it to the broody hen and saw if she would accept it and thankfully Dorothy (the hen) did accept her! Dorothy is hatching eggs rite now and she has recently hatched 4! Allison,Eggy,Sunshine,and Grace! they are precious! I will try to post pictures tomorrow!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
