    Came home from work today to find 9 baby poults
    sitting around and under my BR hen.
    There is still 1 egg left to hatch (if it will).
    Only lost one baby. Looks like it got suffocated
    or crushed by the mother. It's her first hatch.
    I put the food and water closeby, so I hope
    the babies figure it out. Sooooo coool!

    Yes, I took pics with my iPhone, but
    I'm not sure how to download them to this
    post. Can you tell me how to attach pics
    here?
    The poults are Bourbon Redx Royal Palm crosses.
    I wonder what they will end up looking like.
    Right now they look more like BRs.
