    Finally! A few photos of my broody hen and her baby which hatched on the 16th. Champagne (the hen) started with six eggs but I removed five after candling showed no growth. I was beginning to think the last egg wasn't going to hatch either, but it finally did. [​IMG] Champagne is a hen from my first ever attempt at incubating eggs and this is her first attempt at being a momma! I guess we both are getting the hang of this! [​IMG]

    What breed of hen is she? I have one that looks similar and I don't know what she is...

    Yay, congratulations! The first home-hatched chicks are always such an exciting milestone! [​IMG] I can still remember the first clutch one of my hens hatched, though it was over ten years ago (one of the girls from that clutch is still with us, too). What a cute little fluffy chick! It's so fun watching the mama do her mothering thing, too--they're so wonderful at it! [​IMG]

    Oooh, I can't wait for our babies to arrive! My head Orp hen is two-weeks into her (and our) first broody experience. She is setting on four eggs, and has been utterly devoted to keeping those eggs warm. I just know she will be an awesome momma! [​IMG]
