On June 5th I got to see my first ever live hatch. It was exciting right up until the chic cleared the egg and the hen attacked and scalped the chic. Yeah, no!! So for 13 weeks now I've had this baby in the house while she healed. Only egg in the clutch to hatch. The hen that laid this egg is a Buff Orpington and the rooster is a Barred Rock and Barred Cochin mix. Needless to say I feel in love and yesterday "she" started the crowing. I could hear the outside rooster. I was so sure she was a pullet due to rounded feathers, and it was moving day. I batting zero at sexing them I was wrong again wasn't I?

Looks like a pullet to me too. Except for the really red comb and wattles at 13 weeks.
