    Last evening my first Grandchick hatched, when I went to bed I had 3 hatched. I couldn't sleep. Finally about 5:30 this morning I couldn't take it anymore, I went out and checked I had 6 chicks. A while later I had 7 chicks, then 9, then 10. Went away for a while, came home and had 13 chicks. 12 from 1 hen and 1 from the other but Momma one left Momma two have 3 of hers so they are sharing how nice. Still have more eggs to go. Momma one had 20 eggs and Momma two had 6. You go Momma's [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congratulations on all of the fuzzy butts so far! It is an awesome feeling being a chickie grandma! I just had broodies hatch out chicks the beginning of June and they were just so adorable peeking out from under my hens. [​IMG]

    Go mamas! [​IMG] I have so many broodies, I don't know what to do. I finally caved in for two of them and loaded them down with eggs. They are so happy!
