    SEE post #5 for pics of 2 new chickies [​IMG] POST #9 all six chicks with Mama



    [​IMG]

    She is very jumpy and I don't want to disturb her but the suspense is KILLING ME! Yesterday she FREAKED out a couple times (first time mom jitters? ) making all sorts of sounds, knocked over her water and when I tried to fill it she tried to run out. So needless to say I don't want to make her any more jumpy by looking under her [​IMG] Does that look like the top of a hatched eggie or could that have been a cracked shell in the nest before????

    ETA: the pic is dark but there is the top of an eggie right at her face

    I wanted to upload some more pics but I wore out the battery [​IMG] all six chicks hatched, she is a good mama! We set them up in a new clean area to rest & get acquainted. So sweet!

    A couple months ago I never would have attempted this thanks to BYC I am now officially chicken obsessed. I love chickens & this experience makes me love them more [​IMG] all of your wonderful posts helped me so much. This http://www.themodernhomestead.us/article/Broody-Hens-1.html beautiful article & the broody hen thread inspired me to do this. Now I can't wait to do it again, what a joy this is for me & my family. I will post more pics tomorrow. Thanks for the replies & Thanks BYC you guys are amazing!
