STD and BANT Barnevelders, Australorps, and Partridge Cochins due later this week!!

The pics are not as good as I hoped and will take more later when they dry :)

Our first baby hatched around 2am...this one is from one of our girls in our flock out in the coop. She was still fertile 2 weeks after being with a roo!!!

This is the 2nd one, our daughter's egg...it was supposedly not fertile. Looks pretty fertile to me, YAY!!

The 3rd baby hatched this morning around 10am. I watched her come out of her shell.

I had four FBCM chicks in my incubator this morning, so I know EXACTLY how you feel! And one Salmon Favorelle in another... I can hardly wait to see these all dry and fluffed up when I get home from work tonight!!

Congrats!!

Congrats to you too!!! I see on your signature that you have Cayugas too. We have 3 Cayugas as well. How neat.

I am looking forward to them fluffing up too. So far 6 out of 9 have hatched. 1 did not look to have too much development before lock down, but I kept it in there just in case. The other 2 have not pipped yet. I am keeping an eye out though while the others dry out. I think I will move them tonight into a brooder, just nervous about opening the incubator.

Congrats again to you and thank you!
