My Speckled Sussex has been in her nest box for 23 days, after day 2 I put all the eggs I collected underneath her...just for fun. She has been very diligent, taking a bit of time off the nest each day to relieve herself and forage a bit. She has also been more than happy to eat a bit of food each day that I set into the next box. Last night I heard a peep, and lo....a chick! This morning there were 2 more and 2 pips. At this point there are 5 chicks and another pipping egg. The roo is a SLW, and the hens are SLW, SS, BA, BR and Welsummer. Should be some interesting chicks. I already identified one as a BR mix, a BA mix, a SLW and an SS or Welsummer mix. More to come as they hatch out. Here she is with a few of the offspring. Anyone need some chicks??
