    I gave her 3 eggs and only one hatched. She kept leaving the nest and I thought for sure they were no good. I went out on day 23 with no hope and was cleaning up and gathering eggs and I heard a baby. I couldn't believe it!!! [​IMG] Then my RIR tried to steal the baby and was raising it. I gave it back to momma and now they are in the nursery area of the coop. I wanted to just leave it in the big area but my Buttercups kept grabbing it and throwing it like a football. [​IMG] I have 4 other broodys ready to hatch in the next week. [​IMG] Hubby said I couldn't buy any more chicks. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure it's my EE that is a blue and black with white stripes and my golden laced roo's baby. It should be a pretty bird.

    I won't be able to keep all the babies but maybe 4 or 5. I'll sell the rest on craigslist. I always have luck getting them homes on there.
