    Went out to check the girls this morning and my broody hen had hatched her first chick, this evening went out to check and there was another!!!!!! Should I move her tonight or leave? She's in a nesting box and i'm worried about the chicks not getting food or water. I'll post some pics later need to find my camera.

    They are so cute, especially the one with the stripe down it's back.

    What kind are they?

    Yes, that stripe down the back one is unusual. But all are super cute!
