    i had to go out earlier so i went to check her, and there was half an empty egg sticking out couldnt see or hear anything
    so i rushed back to house put some chick crumbs in i know chicks wont need it yet but i thought she might, she did wolfing them down she leant sideways a bit im sure i could hear a very faint chirp.[​IMG]
    Im now back nearly 2 hours later still cant see anything.
    How long until they are dry and fluffy and come out?
    I hope its brown then she can keep it as it will be a hen
    i am so excited!!!!!!!!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    birdlover, they are hybrid eggs any brown chicks will be hens any white ones roosters.
    any rooster chicks will be collected and taken back to where i bought the eggs from very soon

    oh i see!! that was a post from lurky to bird lover, please excuse me im all excited that a chick has hatched.
    i thought i was getting questioned over my reason for being able to tell the difference between male and female with my eggs as chicks i keep having to tell people there cross all the time
