    My momma hen, Auntie Sophie, is on 2 eggs (not hers). I believe they are my Cochin/orpington cross that I hatched out last spring and the new babies are either fathered by my cochin roo or my delaware blue henn roo. Surprises all around!

    I was so excited when I candled last night and saw happy little babies moving around in there! It is going to be a surprise when they hatch because I am not exactly sure when she stated sitting, but I am guessing about the middle of next week sometime! [​IMG]

    The Countdown Starts! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hope they continue to develop! It'll be fun to see what they end up being and when they hatch-I love surprises.
