So excited! I went out to check my 2 broodies in the"Broody bin" coop (Loony binlay on words b/c my broodies are crazy), and my chicks have started hatching! As of 8:00 I have a smoky Iowa Blue, 4 Birchen Iowa Blues, and 2 Silver Iowa Blues! I've been keeping up on tips from BYC and was just so thrilled I had to post! I'll try and add some pics in the morning! Through this I do have one question: One of the babies was cheeping, kicked out of the nest, stuck in the eggshell (membrane had dried and hardened) except for one foot that was free. the chick was getting cold(Its 68* outside) so I brought it inside, removed the hardened shell, and stuck it back under a broody. Did I condemn it or save it? I know you aren't supposed to interfere but I didn't know how long it would last or if it would be able to free itself. This is the 2nd hatch I've done, but the last one failed with only one chick surviving (now 11 weeks). Thanks!
