    Ahh! I'm so happy! [​IMG]
    To be honest, when I put them in the 'bator I wasn't even positive that they were fertilized. Then towards the end I was very doubtful.
    But now I have a little chicky that hatched out, and two more that are breaking their shells.

    The first one to hatch out. I helped him a little bit, because his eggs skin was really tough.

    Another one hatched out, and another one is pecking at its shell! So happy, I'll have 4 chicks. Hopefully they'll all be hens, I have enough roosters running around as is. xD
    Thank you both.

    No, I'm not quite sure what the mother is. (it came from my mix flock, which has a lot of different breeds but no orpingtons. [​IMG] ) But I am pretty sure that the father is a leghorn. [​IMG]
