    Yeaaaa Im so excited.She has 6 so far out of 8 egg's.One had hatched yesterday and I checked her this morn and 4 more then another this eve.She still has an egg under that looks's almost hatched.Only one out of the 8 hasnt shown any sign's but then again I didn't candle any of them.She has 2 silkie's and 4 OEGB's and or a couple of bantam sumatra.One chick is odd never seen anything like it before, it has some kind of bald boil like on the top of it's head [​IMG].I hope it will be ok don't have a clue as to what would have caused that.Im moving her to a new nesting area tomm. after I see how the last egg does hopefully it will finish hatching and I will post up some pic's.She's being a good mama to them already!
