My first hen ever to hatch out a chick!!! YIPPEE!!

This is my EE hen, Eliza, (who happens to be my FAVORITE hen) who is 1 1/2 years old. She went broody a month ago, she'd sit on the eggs the other hens laid, I had to pick her up every day and collect the eggs from underneath her. After a week of this, I felt bad, so I called a friend and asked her if she had any fertile eggs (I didn't). She gave me a bunch of Silkie eggs so I stuck those under her. This morning I saw a fuzzy little chick running around her... so exciting!

PIC!
