    Because not only will I get to see her hatch some babies, I'll know if we have girls right away! The last time I peeked (bad girl) one had zipped half-way... shouldn't be long now! The breeder I got them from gave me a mix of BSLs and CQs... so I'm hoping to see some plain black or reddish fluffy butts! (plus after they hatch I get to go pick out 2 more chicks from the breeder because my AM eggs from her were infertile)

    Everybody think pink for me...

    This is the second time we've had a broody hatch (last was 3 weeks ago) and so far it's not getting any less exciting! [​IMG]

    Broodies and babies are the cutest! I hope you have a great hatch!

    First one out! I ended up helping it a little, but now it's all fluffed up and It's a GIRL! [​IMG]

    2 more to go! Then on Friday morning I'm picking up 2 adopted sisters for the chicks.
