When I left for work I had one little baby bantam cochin, when I got home from work, my wife said, you have two now, I go to the basement to check them out and there were 4 bantam cochins hatched. I have 4 more cochin eggs, and 4 more leghorn eggs (that I got from my swap partner from February's swap). They are chirping up a storm in the bator, but they aren't completely dry yet so I can't move them to the brooder yet, hopefully tomorrow. Hopefully I will have more to brag about soon.

Well, the little white ones feathers on the wings are coming in curled and not straight like the others. It is the only one I can tell so far. But he has a white reg. roo and white frizzled hen. So it was pretty likely that if white it would be frizzled I guess? The others seem to be regular feathers as far as I can tell but they are only 6 days old. Will keep you posted and cant wait for pics Bob.

One of my swap eggs hatched, BUT there is a bloody gob of goo hanging from it, so I am not sure that one will make it. once they all hatch I will put some pictures on here with the survivors, hopefully all of the make it, but I am a little worried about that one.

I am sad to say that one did not make it, when I removed it from the bator it's insides were outside. I have a pip from one of my other swap eggs (Rose comb brown leghorns) and cochin #5 is working it's way out of the shell right now.
My bator is a mess from the one that died, hopefully the rest of the chicks make it out o.k. keep the good vibes coming!!!

Today is Day 22, I have had some temperature issues the last couple days. Up to that point I have 5 Bantam Cochins and 2 rose comb brown leghorns hatch (little chipmunk looking critters), I don't want to give up on the reamining 4 eggs too soon, should I candle and see if there is movement, or just call it done?
