    Greetings, The girls told me, a couple three weeks ago, Pimples was collecting eggs. Our nesting boxes have only low wood seperations between them. We let her keep six eggs. They put her in a smaller cage inside the hen house with food and water. They set up a heat lamp. Today they began hatching. The girls have seen only one chick, when I went out to congradulate her she didn't feel like talking. She has the chick or chicks under her, guess she knows what she's doing.

    That is cool. Congratulations. Make sure she has food. And water.
    Also, add pine shavings. To her nest. So the room doesnt stink. Up.
