    Yup, they are little cuties. [​IMG]

    Um, you said earlier that the bator was in daughters BR. The brooder isn't there is it? Not a good idea after a few days when they really start eating. Because of breathing. Hope the brooder is in an extra bathroom or utility room or down in the basement or something.

    I normally have their brooder in our extra bathroom, but I once put it in our masterbath and after 10 days I couldn't handle it. And I shut the door on their little stinky butts too. Its just not good for the lungswith that many, what with the dust and the ammonia in the air.

    This being your first hatch, I didn't know if you knew and wanted to give you a heads up. [​IMG]
