    Last night I counted 13 but now there's 14! Thiswas Chuck's first hatch and she only got to hatch 2 before I decided to take them into the incubator, she was pretty sad for a bit but she had accidentally squashed 2 that were zipped and I was worried it would happen again and she kept getting off the nest while they were hatching and leaving the 2 wet babies there too... poor girl, she should do better next time though!

    Once they got into the incubator they started FLYING out of their eggs! They're all Chocolates & Blue Fawns [​IMG] . Willoughby is the daddy [​IMG]

    Pheasants.. Still not sure exactly what kind, no replies on my breed ID post. I had them in the ourdoor brooder but they are ridiculous escape artists!! So they're stuck inside now [​IMG] 2 Stripey ones & 1 Black one... one of the black ones is still missing, needless to say, i don't expect to find it now. [​IMG]

    I hatched out some ringnecks the week of the 4th, i had a brown one with the exact color shading as that black one. Mine didn't grow at all and ended up under the rests feet. [​IMG]

    Black pheasant looks like a melanastic mutant pheasant, and the other looks like a chinese ringneck pheasant. Sorry if they aren't spelled right! We have 75 ringneck pheasants that we released! That would be my guess [​IMG]

    The ducks are precious!!!
