    Most of them hatched mothers day, and a few monday. Out of a dozen eggs one was tossed at day 10 due to no development, and the hen tossed 2 around hatch time (they looked full term and healthy, but I figure a broody knows better than I do). All in all, we have 9 fuzzy healthy chicks, and everyone loves pictures of fuzzy chicks.

    The hen (DeWalt) is some sort of polish cross with beautiful blue/lav highlights, and a darn good mothering drive. The chicks are EE, OE, and 2 copper marans.
