These will be from black barred girl and dad is blue or white(and quite possibly both..hehehe). I will try to get a pic of them tomorrow if she brings them out. I am not sure how long she will stay on the nest with babies but I would think they will be getting hungry and thirsty by tomorrow. I am hoping to get a blue barred boy to go with my blue bar girl.

It is amazing how they can lay that many eggs, and then hatch all of them in the same day or two isn't it. All of those eggs were hers too !

That says a lot about how old the eggs can be and still develop. Our runner was a sloppy broody and let others lay eggs up to a week after she started setting. She would hatch one or two a day. Your mom deserves kudos.
