    I'm still new at raising chickens (started last fall), so both my hen and I are new at this hatching babies stuff!

    I let my Japanese Banty girl sit on 6 fertilized foster eggs and was completely shocked when she successfully hatched all of them. 5 were definitely "born" on Saturday, May 2nd, and the 6th was either Saturday or Sunday. Hooray!!

    Quote:The moment they were dry I was taking pictures. [​IMG] Poor things probably think the camera is their Momma... then again with all the flashes I was worried they'd go blind. I finally had DH come and take the picture and use the zoom lense. [​IMG]

    The tricky part now will be to figure out what these little boogers are exactly. I know the daddy was a jet black banty roo - meaner than the dickens... I have been paying special close attention to their combs to see if anyone has anything more than the other - so far just one. That'd be great - 5 hens and 1 roo, but I have NO idea what I'm going to do with all these bantys when they grow up!! I'm hoping the girl that gave me the fertilized eggs will take a couple.
