There are 16 chicks in the tub pic but there are 20 now...19 of which are from 2 nests. One nest has a normal (smooth) mille fleur hen and a normal white rooster. The other nest has a mille fleur frizzle hen and a normal mille fleur rooster. The 20th chick was from a trio of a normal white rooster, a normal white hen and a mille fleur hen. It was the first chick hatched and the only egg in that nest...actually it hatched under my lavender ameraucana bantam, but that's another story. There are about 10 eggs left to go in the last nest of a normal white hen and white frizzle rooster. I've candled them once a week for a few weeks, but was worried that these were taking longer than the others did so I brought the eggs in to candle them this morning. Once I got into my quiet house though, there was so much chirping coming from this basket of eggs that candling was cancelled and they were promptly returned to their mommy. I've also included pics from last year of the parent stock. It took us a while to get a coop situated to where we could pair our cochins up and let them sit their eggs (so we wouldn't end up with featherless frizzle/frizzle babies). I bring them in though because in the coops, there's no way for the babies to get to food or water. Maybe we'll have that worked out by next year. This is our first and last hatch of the year. I want everybirdie old enough and feathered enough to deal with winter. I'll be selling some normal and frizzle babies in September or October so if you live in central Ohio, stay tuned!
