    I moved them on day 6 - yesterday. Got the sussex to look after them whilst I drove to the closest farm to grab an incubator. I'm doing a staggered hatch so for the others it was day 1 yesterday so I'm hoping I will get at least a 50% hatch at least. It's worse than bringing up my 3 children lol!

    1 week old today & tomorrow. They look so funny running around out there!! I've only ever brooded in a tote in my spare bedroom, so I'm really enjoying this! Lol

    I don't think there is anything I enjoy more in the yard than watching a broody teaching her little ones how to be good chickens! [​IMG]
    Good luck! She should make a great mom! Remember to post back with pics when they hatch!
