    Congrats! and isn't this weather weird?? [​IMG]

    I just received 47 chicks from Cackle last Friday thinking that the August temps and a heat lamp would be enough to keep them warm. Woke up this AM to find the brooder struggling to reach 87 degrees.

    Chicks were huddled together but not piled on top of each other so I'm hoping we're OK! [​IMG]

    Temp here this AM was 53. (I'm in WV)

    What kind do you have? Such a cutie!

    That is a little bit of an optical illusion. It's just the top part of the egg that fell into the bottom part.

    Thanks for the kind words!!! We are so excited that our first hatch is going so well. Churkey, our hen, is being a great surrogate Mom to these EE's...
