OK here we go, lets watch them grow. My babies are 2 days old, got feathers popping out, they are running around, eating, drinking, pooping
and making me smile on a regular basis:

More pictures tonight

So 7 of the Ameraucana/EE's went home with the girl I hatched them out for but I found 7 under one of my hens instead of 6!
It is hard to get their pictures with mama growling at me. Is it possible to put my two mamas together? I have one in a side pen with the 7 and another in a dog kennel with only 2. I did not want to have baby chicks in the kitchen so I was letting them raise them. Also how long before I move them back to the big coop? I have 7 ducks in with the other chickens and I heard that ducks eat baby chicks (don't know if that is true). Any ideas? As soon as I can, I will try to get more pictures. Good job everyone on their hatch! Also, how do you keep the humidity down when the humidity in the air is over 80%. Humidity is supposed to be 40% to 55% during the first 18 days and then 55% - 70% the last 3 correct? For my incubator, I had to do a dry pan for it to be 48%. When I fill the center pan, it is 65% and then when full was over 80%. Any help would be good because I am getting more eggs Thursday.
