    Here's a few pics of a recent hatch that Heidi (from BYC) did for me. The black chicks are Jersey Reds (Black Jersey Giant x New Hampshire Red - they're supposed to be egg-laying machines, all through winter, and very docile), and a few of my own Ameraucanas. The Jersey Reds, we had the most awesome hatch results! 14 shipped eggs, 1 clear off the bat, ALL the rest hatched! I'm very pleased with the results, and just wanted to share:

    Thanks so much! I had thought I'd end up with about 12 total, and I've got 18! Holy cow!

    I LOVE those little fuzz-faces!

    Thanks, all! I just love this forum - everyone's so kind and gives helpful feedback!!

    Minpingurl - if you're hatching, search for threads on hatching in egg cartons on this forum. There's lots out there on it, and it seems to be VERY successful!!
