Other game hen blessed us with more chicks...

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Guinea Goonie, Apr 10, 2009.

  1. Heard the chirping up over a part of the horse barn and sure enough, the other game hen was hatching.

    We moved her, little bucket and all to the nursery, she did not even move.

    This morning I put a heat lamp on her and moved her nest out of the little bucket onto the floor of the nursery.

    She hatched out all 8 of her babies, one was actually still emerging from it's shell.

    She ate and drink a little then back on the nest she went.

    WE ARE JUST THRILLED. No we have 14 babies from our wild red jungle fowl hens and roo.

    pics will be done tomorrow when mom gets all her babies fuzzy and dry and eating.
