    Happy Sunday! After a long night of watching mama roll her eggs around the hamper, she finally got a victory. I lost so much sleep! She was off the nest for awhile last night eating and drinking, and then when she heard them chirp, she'd roll them around [​IMG] This little guy hatched first. I went outside to feed my roo and his girls, come back inside to a baby. Funny thing is the egg wasn't zipped 15 minutes prior to going outside..She gave birth to this one..he hatched too fast [​IMG] So here are some pics. Baby came out and is walking around good. Long feathers like mama..These feathers are temp right? I mean the color..I'll post pics throughout the day as they dry and come out from under mama.

    Enjoy!
