Day 18 surprise!!

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Jul 27, 2008.

  1. Hi!
    I have eggs set the 9th, 15th, 16th, and 22nd under broody hens.
    Today, I was going to move all the eggs set the 9th to 2 hens (when it's getting close to Day 21, I like to have them in nest boxes I can block off from the other hens).
    Look what I found [​IMG]


    Just popped out and still wet. There are a couple more pipping already too.
    Early birds, lol!

    Nothing more endearing than a broody with babies.
  4. And there is another one out. First one was a Silkie, this one is from the Frizzle pen.
    It's peculiar... I didn't set eggs til late evening (dark-thirty, when I went out to close down all the houses) on the 9th.
