After a disasterous hatch with a black cochin hen in September we had a buff orpington hen go broody and I put 10 eggs under her and penned her up alone. Well tomorrow would be her 21 days but when I checked her in the barn this afternoon she had 7 new chicks. So far 5 buff, 1 black orpington, and one easter egger I think. They are sooooo cute. And of course hurricane Ida is coming in so we have rain and wind tonight. Won't be able to go check on everyone. So it looks like our hatch rate has improved tremendously from the last time. She is in the barn in an empty stall in a new brooder can't wait till morning to see if the rest hatch.
