    So, he did it. Stud Muffin, my little broody roo, hatched out one of two eggs. Well, I'm not sure if the other one is hatching or not, I only lifted him up long enough to see a chick... then I squealed, danced around a bit, and rushed in here to tell you guys... It's cold outside, so I plugged the bator back up and I'm gonna bring the chick and perhaps the egg inside. Not that I don't trust him to care for them, just for the sake of my own sanity. I won't sleep otherwise. I'd feel bad if I went out there tomorrow to two frozen chicks...

    Yeah, he sat 21 days plus some because at first I wouldn't let him have any eggs.

    Sorry Henry, I already took them. It was getting dark. But I'll take pics of them in the bator if you want..? And I can get pics of the roo tomorrow. It was cold and getting dark, and I just wanted them inside. No time for pics

    There's a pic of him on a thread I have in the me, my chickens, my family board. I guess I need to take more, you people are very demanding. It's been wet and gushy outside and I'm sick... But I have a photography assignment due monday anyway. Guess I'll get out and take pics tomorrow.

    Did Stud Muffin get mad when you took away his chick?
