    Krisitne Out Of The Brooder

    Here are a few pics of our adorable babies. Two hens were on eggs and the one hen kept kicking the poor newborns out of the nest as they hatched! We saved all but one. One has splayed legs and is in our brooder in the house, walking now with her splint. :)
    The first pic is of a baby that was kicked out of the nest, half hatched out of the egg. I helped her but didn't expect her to live. But she is two days old now, eating and drinking on her own in my brooder. She is a healthy little bird. We just love her
