    My hen has hatched 2 more chicks, this is the second time she has hatched. I was hoping she would sit a bit longer and get more to hatch, she was sitting on 7 eggs so now there are 5 looking so sad. ah well 2 is better then none. They will be free to a good home in a month or so.

    Hen is regular red breasted and dad is a cinnamon.

    eeew now I can see how dirty that wall is. Looks like a job for me in a few weeks, after the babies can fit through the bars anymore. lol
