    These are some of the newest hatchlings from Ms. Julies Orpingtons. These are four of six eggs that developed. One chick died after day 14 and a second chick died after pipping and zipping for a short time. This was my first ever attempt to incubate and hatch eggs in a bator. I had to choose the hardest breed to try that with. Needless to say I am estatic with the results. This now gives me a new gene pool to add to my existing chicks. These are some spunky little buggars. I like to think of them as "The Four Amigos".

    This little chick had a tough time hatching for several hours when it did not get a clean zip. Finally had to help it to save it. Spunky little rascal and is the survivor.

    What do you mean, "hatchaholic"? I've only got 61 more orp eggs in incubation at this time. That's not so bad, is it? Hugh? [​IMG]
