    So my welsh harlequin, Layla, decided to build her nest under the coop in the far corner...so I wanted to check on how the progress was going a couple days ago so i removed the boards on the base of the coop and took an egg and candled it and i guessed about 2 days till they hatched and I was right! They are hatching right now. Looks like 5 are out and about 6 or 7 more to go. I will add more pics when she brings them out from under the coop!

    In this pic you can see Layla just sitting on her nest...
