    Sorry about Lucky's foot!
    Our little bantam hen, Moonshine, just hatched a clutch of eggs yesterday/last night! They are large breed chicks, there are 3, and hopefully will be 4 soon. They will get bigger than her fast!

    In this pic, she is showing them how to eat, while still warming an unhatched egg, which she rolled closer to the feeder. The 4th egg was started a day late, but she seems to be able to multitask....

    No expert here but everything you did sounds about right and i know things i seen online said up to 48 hours then start to worry. Let nature run its course just keep a close eye on it and if you see any sign of distress then help it along. But so far i think youre doing great being a foster mommy for the baby. Its very lucky you guys found it.

    Hello there. What you read was posted two years ago. That little baby’s name is lucky and she is just perfect. You should read the the store. Many refer to it a the best novel they have read in years lol. I have to say so myself it’s pretty amazing. Thank you.

    One of my pheasants lays all her eggs in the water bowl. At least it makes them easy to find and they still hatch fine :bow
