    My first peachicks of the season...also the first time I let a chicken do the incubating, gave her 2 eggs and both hatched this morning, the pics just don't these babies justice, wish you could hear them and their little weeping noises! Already pecking, so far so good! They are black-shouldered babies, the peahen is sitting on 5 eggs and my other peahen is on 7 eggs.

    Quote:That's about how I felt when I checked this morning and they were both out of the egg! Was worried, sometimes I'd check her and she'd only have an egg partially covered at times. Hopefully she teaches them to eat right, then I can sell them off as babies, I'm not trying to raise them.
