    My hen hatched (well with help on a few of them) 11 chicks this past week. Here are photos and video clips. One of them is living inside since it has been having a few eye issues that luckily seem to be resolved. I'm leaving it inside for another day or 2 just to make sure.

    The hen left this one on 2 different occasions. The egg was cold when I got home from work, but the chick was still working on trying to get out. I helped it out of the shell with some tweezers.

    This is right after it came out...I STILL can't get the hang of that point and shoot camera!

    I'll take some more pics and video soon. I've been letting them out of the dog crate to run around their yard. The babies have been having all kinds of fun playing keep away with worms.
