RIR chicks

    22 days ago I set the first 18 pure eggs from my RIR girls. I pulled one early on because it was clear so I put 17 into the hatcher and this morning I took 17 chicks out. One has a pretty rough navel so I may have to cull her, but the rest are doing great. Sorry the pictures aren't that great.

    I just love the red color. I can't wait for my frizzle's RIR eggs to open.
