    Hello lads and lassies.

    Just thought I would share with you my latest hatch.
    I had 20 Polish eggs (8 silver and 12 Golden)
    in the bator for the last 21 days.

    Went to bed last night and 2 chicks had hatched.

    Woke up this morning to a bit of a panic.

    The bator was full of chicks. It looked a bit tight in there, as they were quite big chicks

    Some of them were upside down as they were trapped between the dividing wire.

    I had to rush in there and get them into my brooder.

    Luckily enough the brooder was nice and hot as there were some quail chicks in there which hatched 4 days ago.

    So to date I have 11 Polish chicks hatched with 9 to go.

    Very happy with the result as I had never seen Polish chickens before only in pictures.

    Those little pom pom heads are so cute when they first hatch aren't they?
    I really like Polish chickens. I miss mine.
