    I finally found the time to post pics of the chicks from my first ever hatch. Its also my Gold Laced Cochin hen's first ever hatch. I purchased eight Wheaten Marans eggs to put under her when she went broody. Three of them never developed, one looked to have stopped developing shortly before the hatch date - the shell had cracked at some point. Four of the eggs hatched out with healthy active chicks, but one died sometime during the night. I think it got squashed by Mama - she was still sitting on two eggs (that never hatched). So here are my three pretty babies that hatched on October 8th:

    Mama is doing a great job of taking care of them.

    Here are a few pics of her. We call her Swiffer and she is one of my favorites. These pics were taken in July of this year. She is 31 weeks old now.
