    I have 6 developed bantam chocolate orpington eggs that are due on Thursday. My breeding pair, Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Swirl (remember bullwinkle? "Mousse & Swirl")
    have just started giving me hatching eggs.
    First batch due in a couple of days. Color me very excited!

    They are taking their time
    4 have hatched, one just a few minutes ago.
    2 have not pipped yet but I know from candling that they were developed as well so I'm waiting to open the hatcher to get out the first 4 so you have to wait for pics a little longer
    they are CUTE!
