    21 days ago, we stuck 3 eggs under our bantie cochin Kooshball (she went broody on us, so we decided to let her try) this little nugget was the first one out(other eggs pipped, might hatch tomorrow)...

    What a darling New Year baby, my favorite breed too. Congrats. My hens have tried to hatch wood chips for months. Not gonna happen yet! Cold country here & I don't want pockets full of hatchlings ~ not yet.

    we've got Koosh in a tote in the bathroom, since I seriously suspect our bigger hens would eat her... so her and the meepers should be fine...

    Koosh is a great mamma, and dosen't seem too worried about us picking the kids up( as long as we don't reach under her to get them)..

    and here is a couple of good profile shots of the two of them...

    lil' Thor

    So cute! You must have tiny hands cause those chicks look HUGE, LOL. I love the picture of the buff chick peeping out of mama's wing :)
