    Next time, use the rubber shelf liners inside the plastic container.

    That's what I did all last year. I hatched around 200 chicks last year but just forgot the liner with this first hatch. I knew there was a reason why I woke up at 1 AM and couldn't go back to sleep!

    Well, I have had a good start to my day! Ethel has a Blue Marans out and a Pita Pinta that just hatched fluffing up under her. Hoping for more in a few hours! You can just barely see the PP in the top photo on the left. The little Blue stuck her head out to look around, so the second photo I had longer to get, so is much clearer!

    So cool to see the chicks!!

    I got some cute shots of my girls enjoying the sun just now. The chicken nap one is very off center because they wanted to lie down right next to my feet :))), which I was trying to keep out of the frame.

    Beautiful! Does your friend live in Spain or did he get his birds from Spain?

    Hey everyone. I'm looking for some rare breeds to raise here in America. How rare is this breed in the USA?
