Well, I think I got my days messed up cuz I thought friday was day 18 and I had 2 pips last night in the bator. Now I have 2 chicks, 5 pips, and who knows what's under the 2 broodies. I went out to check on them and OMGosh, there was the hugest massivest, grossest (are any of these words? ) poop I ever saw. It's all over her. So being the dedicated mom that I am, I reached my hand under there and scooped out most of the poop (making sure I had clean shavings between me and the poop. But it's all over her bum. I got a warm towel and tried to clean as much as I could, but as she lifted up a bit, I saw little chicky legs under her. So, any major clean up is going to have to wait a few days. So, I know I have at least 3 chicks so far and lot of pips to go.
