    My friesian hen Ronnie had her first baby today, i went to get her out to have a drink, food and poop this evening and heard the tweet tweet tweet [​IMG] It is so sweet i wasnt expecting them until thursday, but maybe she was on her eggs longer than when i found her broody. IM SO HAPPY.

    So now, will she stay on her eggs until they all hatch out? will she still need to be taken off to eat, drink and poo?

    im sure i will have more questions soon as this is my first time hatching eggs (well Ronnie hatching but.. you no what i meen), any help is very much greatful. [​IMG]

    Pics will be on photo gallery soon...

    [​IMG] good for you, you have a new baby [​IMG] but if the others dont come soon [​IMG] she will most likely get off the nest [​IMG] to take her new baby to get some food and walk around, just pray that she stays on the nest untail the other chickes are here [​IMG] Good luck
