    So our Cream Legbar Leah is sitting on 20 eggs!! The first group of them are hatching in 6 days, so I was wondering if anyone had any last-minute advice. We haven't candled the eggs since we aren't incubating them and Leah is very feisty, and would peck hard if we tried to grab an egg. So if there is anything that I need to know please tell me! Thank you!

    I will post some pics of Leah and her littles once they hatch!:D:D

    The only advice I have for you is try not to interfere, although so tempting. Is momma and her eggs separated from the rest of the flock? Best of luck with your hatch!!! Anxiously waiting to see pix!!!!

    Yes interested in how many hatched? They are so cute. I have 34 little ones about three weeks just put them all out in there own pen and tiny little house my hubby built. Love all my chicks but nothing beats watching them grown except that first egg.

    Not all 20 were layed on the same day, so they haven't all hatched yet. So far we have had 10 hatch but only 9 are still living.
