    Dottie's eggs hatched on Tuesday and she has 8 little Cochins to keep up with. 8 out of 12 is pretty good for me. 1 had hatched but didn't make it and 3 didn't even pip. I candled those and they looked fully formed but just didn't hatched. Oh well, She has 8 to keep her busy. It looks like 2 white, 2 gold laced and 4 buff. I put a light over the food area as they didn't want to come out from under Mom to eat and drink with it being in the upper 50's.

    Here is Dottie's new family [​IMG]
