Well today is the big day. I went in for my normal morning tidy up, feeding and water. Since today is the day, 16 days after my hens started to sit on their eggs, I checked one of their eggs and BINGO! it was pipping big time. I was wondering when the chicks will finally come out from under their mothers? Is it when all of them hatch? Its lunch time now. I know they will have to dry off etc. I just can't wait to see them. I also have 13 in a brooder. Is it ok to give them some small meal worms as a treat? The eldest are 5 days old.
