    I hatched these guys a couple weeks ago. She sent 12 eggs, 10 started developing and 5 hatched, I lost one last week, it was never real lively. The 4 I have are really nice. The smallest one is a hoot, her name is Tiny.

    I have some chicks the same age. I'll post some pics if I can tomorrow. Im so sorry about the one you had to help. I guess that happens sometimes.

    I've lost so many clutches this year due to broody malfunction [​IMG] Now, I know why people love their incubators so much. I had 5 columbians and 2 mottleds that hatched under a broody this year. One mottled died suddenly in the coop the other day. I have no idea what happened. The others look great and are starting to get some feathering.
