    One was a premie and died during the night the other one was to big to get out on it's own and I was too late, the third I had to help out because it is too big for the shell,too.So I think the other 3 or 4 may have to be helped out also, the other are much smaller so hopefully they will do it on their own, I have intervening![​IMG] 3 pipping a 2 small ones and medium one, nothing on the larger ones may have to listen in a little while and check out what's going on in there.[​IMG]

    Only have 2 alive one from Wild Child the Japanese Golden Phoenix, and EE black and a little white on it's chest both seem to be girls but I lost 7 total because of that darn light!!! It threw the temp and humidity WAY OFF and they pretty much got cooked, I think! I am done for the winter, or so I say.[​IMG] I think I will wait for my other EE's and Barred Rocks to go broody sometime this spring. We shall see.
